Dr. Ivan Hucal's Ratings
My child had a great experience with Dr. Hucal! The girls in the front and back are very friendly and knowledgable with every question that came up along the way. The only negative thing was the wait time, sometimes Dr. Hucal would pass our room several times before coming in, therefore our 30 minute appointment would turn into an hour appointment. Once we did have his attention things went Great!!
Dr. Hucal is without a doubt a very skilled man! My daughter and I saw him for an initial exam and were greeted by very professional front area staff. We were taken into the exam room where the initial exam lady gathered detailed information from us and reviewed the forms that we filled out before we came. In a very short time Dr. Hucal came in. Very personable and I knew my daughter liked him right away. After his examination , he reviewed with us in detail ( and in words we could understand) exactly what he was recommending. We left knowing exactly what the treatment would be and how much it would cost. Within a couple of weeks my daughter had her braces on! Over the next 18 months we went for regular visits, which were always very informative. Progress reports , oral hygiene reports and encouraging words when needed. Overall experience was exceptional . My daughters teeth look beautiful!! I Highly recommend this Orthodontist !
I went for braces and he assured me they would aid in straightening my front teeth. After we had paid and were finished treatment he told me I had a tongue thrust since I was younger and therefore if I wanted to see results for longer than a few months after the braces were done then I should see a speech pathologist (which is not a cheap option). I was very suspicious that he only figured out the tongue thrust after treatment but was informing me that I showed signs of having it since I was little. Would not recommend going there or else be very wary his reasonings for braces and dig a little deeper yourself.
I'm not sure who these back staff are that are 'unfriendly' but I've been going to see Dr. Hucal for three years and every staff member has treated me fantastic. Front and back staff are always polite and friendly, Dr.Hucal is knowledgeable, kind and radiates a positive energy. Love this place!
The front staff have always been polite, helpful and cheerful. The back staff, well, you never know what you are going to get. Most are disinterested, clearly unhappy, don't smile, don't want to be talked too. Some are the complete opposite. Dr. Hucal is a breath of fresh air and we can't wait until he shows up, the mood suddenly changes. Dr. Hucal has a great bed side manor, clearly cares for his patients and is very professional. He has always thoroughly explained what the goals are for my daughters care. He has a great sense of humour and my daughter can't wait to see him every time. Thank you so much Dr. Hucal for the great care.
Dr. Hucal is efficient, knowledgeable, current and professional. As icing on the cake, he is one of the most personable, kind and compassionate doctors I have ever encountered. As a former registered nurse, I had great curiosity and many questions about what he was doing and he always took the time to answer any of my questions and explained everything completely to my satisfaction. The major part of my regime was undergoing radical jaw surgery. I ended up experiencing severe pain for a very prolonged period that only occurs in 2-3% of the population. Dr. Hucal was very attentive to my care this whole time and oozed with compassion. He gave me hope at every appointment and always put my mind at ease and all his predictions about my progress came to pass just as he would say. I would and do recommend him very highly and I have great trust in and respect for this man.
Didn't have a good experience with this Doctor. He seemed to be more interested in getting my son to have expensive cosmetic oral surgery that we were unable to afford and then acted like we were bad parents for saying no to the surgery. All we wanted was my son's teeth straightened which he did do, and did a great job on that, but there was alot of pressure to get this surgery done, to the point that we dreaded taking my son in for his appointments because there was always a confrontation
