14/07/14 5 5 5 5 In May of 2014, I had 2 cysts removed, bone grafting and 2 extractions, and I was nervous about the surgery, but at the initial consultation, after the x-rays were taken by a very nice assistant, Dr. Calat went over them with me and answered any questions I had. I found him to be very professional, patient and caring. Thanks to him and his assistants, the procedure was painless and there was also very little pain afterwards. I have gone back for post operative follow-ups, and the healing process is proceeding quite and I'm sure it's because of Dr. Calat and his team team's expertise. I truly recommend Mid-Manhattan Oral Surgery, Dr. Calat is really a talented surgeon. p.s. the front desk staff is also very courteous and professional.  Respond

03/06/14 5 5 5 5 When I found out I needed to have my wisdom teeth pulled not only was I not excited I became a huge baby about the whole situation. I am a big guy who played football and people close to me would say I am fearless. The day before my procedure I was like a baby scared and nervous and clinging to my mommy. Then I got to Dr. Calats office… His kind staff, the friendly environment and his professionalism put me at total ease. The morning of the procedure, Dr. Calat walked me through everything step by step as I had requested. His staff even allowed me to choose the Pandora station I would be listening to during the procedure. Between his steady hand, Soothing voice and expertise in the field I could not have had a better experience. I am not one to write reviews on the internet and I don’t think I have ever really appreciated a Dr. Appointment or surgery until my wisdom tooth experience. Thank you Dr. Calat and Team!  Respond

06/01/13 5 3 5 5 Dr. Calat is one of my favorite doctors. He did tooth extraction and dental implant for me last year. I had several visits with him during the seven months period and really appreciate his outstanding surgeon skills. The pain for both procedures were minimum and recovery was fast too. I wish that he is my general dentist or physician! He is the only out of network doctor I use and definitely worth the extra I have to pay. I highly recommend him!!

17/05/11 5 5 5 5 Dr.Calat is the best oral surgeon!My husband was very nervous and embarrassed about his teeth. Dr. Calat walked us through every step of getting his his teeth extracted,Called us many times at home and even gave us his cell phone number. My husbands teeth were VERY BAD!!! and all had to be removed. Not once did he feel humiliated or embarrassed by Dr. Calat and his staff...I researched many dentists in my area (central NJ) and decided to go with Dr. Calat at Mid Manhattan ( an hour drive in to NYC) because he made us feel that comfortable!He is well worth the money and would recommend him to EVERYONE!  Respond

04/05/10 5 5 5 5 Dr. Calat did my dental implant, and it was a complete success. I had discomfort feeling on a particular gum and root area for a long time and didn't even know which tooth was causing the discomfort. Dr. Calat was the only one doctor who was able to diagnose the problem and explained thoroughly for guidance. Dr. Calat's diagnosis is highly accurate by using a state of the art equipment- CT Scanner (in-house) and his high knowledge of expertise. I felt Dr. Calat's high expertise starting from his accurate diagnosis and during the procedure to the post surgery period. My long time unsolved discomfort is finally solved and I am very thankful for Dr. Calat to accurately diagnose the cause of my discomfort. Dr. Calat's diagnosis and extremely high technique and skills for implant treatment is highly reputable and recommended.

29/09/09 3 5 3 3 Dr. Calat removed my wisdom teeth. He was very friendly and I had no complications afterwards. However, his pricing was way off! I was told when I went for my consultation that they spoke with my insurance company to see what would be covered. Then they made an estimate of costs on what insurance would pay and what I had to cover ($400). 3 months later I received a bill from the dr's office saying I owed them another $1200. When I called to discuss it with them they blamed my insurance for not being clear during their initial phone call and that the amount they gave me was only an estimate. Estimates are not over $1000 off! This is ridiulous. I do not recommend going there as it also occured with someone else I know.

11/02/09 5 5 5 5 Dr Calat is very soothing when he speaks. The extraction went so smoothly and quickly that before I knew it, it was all over. I appreciate the fact that he uses new technology to make the process easier and more efficient. The office space is also very comfortable. The insurance had some issues but the staff was able to take care of it quickly. The experience was pleasant and I would definitely refer my friends and family to Dr Calat.

19/01/09 1 5 5 5 paul calat is a stand up guy but they are very shady on the pricing, he mailed me a bill 8 months later asking for 450 dollars and when i looked into it he billed my insurance for stuff he didnt do. nice guy but money hungry.

22/11/08 5 4 5 5 I recently had a very badly broken wisdom tooth extracted. Dr. Calat used a few small injections to numb ONLY the tooth area, and proceeded about 10 minutes later to extract the tooth literally in seconds. It was done so quickly without pain or any grinding/crunching noises that I didn't realize it was already over. I had NO pain at all afterwards, and was especially glad that my whole face wasn't numb like you usually get at the dentist. I received a phone call the next day asking how I was feeling, and a week later got a cute birthday email saying "We hope you many reasons to smile today". The staff is always pleasant and helpful, and the office is clean and bright.

22/04/07 5 5 5 I recommend Dr.Calat very highly. I came in for a dental implant and he was very patient with my concerns and questions. I had the procedure done and was treatly caringly by Calat as well as his staff. After the procedure he called me the next day to see how I was doing. I had this done about 3 weeks ago and had relatively no pain.  Respond
