14/11/12 5 5 5 5 I am writing because I went to this Dr. only from one recommendation from a random orthodontist and from reading online reviews. Thanks to others who wrote good reviews I went to Dr. F. I went with him bec. he takes my insurance. I had a tooth extraction a week ago plus bone grafting (a root canal that went bad) and he did it with only local anesthesia. I was awake and was aware the entire time. He was good- he did a good job from what i can say. I came back just now from a follow up and he said everything looks good. staff was nice and friendly- patient waiting area was nice, clean and new. He is a nice guy, very caring and called me later the day of surgery to check on me. Overall good experience for what had to be done.  Respond

02/10/11 5 5 5 5 I love Dr. Ferdowsmakan! He's so nice and gentle. I hate going to the doctor and the office made me feel so comfortable. My procedure went very well and I only had a little bit of pain after. And no swelling! Amazing doc.

01/06/11 3 5 4 3 The Dr. and his assistants are great, he did a great job on my in-plants with almost no pain. His Aid that handles insurance is a little questionable. They seem not to know how to handle claims and they forget to send all required information to the insurance companies causing delays. I had to call and send email to them asking to have all the required information sent to insurance company, so I can get my claim process correctly. I almost think they were doing this on purpose so they do not have to go with the negotiated. I really hope that is not the case. I am sure they all have access to that information and should know better.

20/04/11 1 2 1 1 This doctor shows no sign of confidence in his work and gives wishy washy answers to questions. After keeping me there for 1 hour to take impressions of my teeth, he had his staff (not himself) call me and tell me he will not be treating me anymore.  Respond

28/12/10 5 5 5 5 Honestly, this is the absolute best tooth-puller I have ever needed. He is gentle, caring and helpful. So are all of his staff. He lets you know exactly what to expect and how it will impact your life. One thing that is very, very special is the follow up calls he makes personally to answer any questions the day after the procedure. I recommend him to all my friends, and now to anyone else who checks this rating system out. He is terrific and I recommend him highly.  Respond

24/10/10 5 5 5 5 I went into the office for an examination of my wisdom teeth. I did not want to wait for another appointment to remove them as I had pain in one of them. The Dr removed them on my first visit. I experienced no pain at all. The Dr was gentle and made sure I had no pain through out the procedure. The staff is kind and gentle as well. I will gladly recommend the Dr to anyone. Thanks for the great care. David Levi, San Diego

15/09/10 5 5 5 5 I completely agree with everything everyone else has said. Dr. F and his staff were absolutely wonderful and made me feel much more comfortable about getting my wisdoms pulled. He answered all of my questions and in no way felt rushed through my consultation with him. The surgery was quick and there was very little swelling following. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an oral surgeon.  Respond

10/07/10 5 5 5 5 This excellent, kind, and experienced doctor scheduled me for emergency tooth extraction the very next after I called in agony AFTER HOURS the night before (I was a new patient). His price was extremely reasonable, and his sympathetic staff worked with me on a payment plan. I was in horrible pain, (and quite anxious). Now, the very same evening, I'm a new person! Dr. Ferdo~smaaken (pronunciation tip)worked a miracle for me. The type of doc who is a rare gift, and a tribute to his profession!  Respond

09/07/10 5 5 5 5 I was apprehensive for wisdom tooth surgery.But it was painless and recovery was in a 2-3 days. Although, I got 25% discount for safeguard dental insurance, it appears the doctor is not enlisted with Safeguard. I will strongly recommend this doctor and facility anytime.  Respond

29/06/10 5 5 5 5 I found Dr. Ferdowsmakan to be at once very professional, compassionate and caring. His expertise contributed much to my speedy recovery from 6 teeth extractions. He called me later that evening at home to make a personal inquiry to my condition. I couldn't imagine receiving better service!--Edwin R. Hurd  Respond
