10/07/13 2 1 2 3 Every time i went in there, the staff did not look like they wanted to see me. Even though they said "How are you" and all that, they never even smiled once to me. On the contract I was promised teeth whitening at the end of the treatment; At the end, they told me i couldn't receive it because I didn't wear my retainers full time; but i did. Price was really high, and overall I think that another orthodontist would have been a better choice for me.

03/07/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Low and his staff are amazing, I cannot say it enough. I was 20 when I came to his office seeking orthodontic treatment. He started by explaining my current situation and what he will need to do to fix it. He was understanding that I did not want jaw surgery. I did not want traditional braces, so he gave me multiple options to choose from with varying prices. I understood that what I chose was very expensive but it has been the best investment I have ever made. He and his manager gave me a few payment methods to choose from, all included varying deposits down and a monthly payment contract. He also waived my exam fee because he knew how much I wanted this :) They gave me a few days to decide and I called them the next day, I did not even want a second opinion. I am on my 3rd year, expected because my teeth were so crooked. Payments were done after 22 months and I have not been charged anything extra . I am in no rush to have my braces off, I want him to take his time :)  Respond

11/05/13 3 4 1 3 Dr Low is a very nice man, and it looks like a busy office. However, I was shocked that when I went to see him, his first course of treatment was the most invasive. I think his rates are very expensive and I would definitely seek a second opinion when going to him. That being said, a very nice, personable man.

10/05/13 3 2 1 1 Corey Lowe is probably one of the most arrogant and egotistical people I have ever met. He seems to think he graces his patients with his very presence, despite the fact that he is condescending, insulting, and impatient. This could have been more forgivable had he been able to demonstrate any amount of skill in his field, however he was and continues to be a sub-par orthodontist at best. His work is very shoddy, and so is his attitude.  Respond

06/02/13 1 1 1 1 Result of his work:1. Buck teeth, damaged gums, pulled off crowns, retainers which are meant to let teeth move back to natural position within 10 years.. His billing clerk/office manager lies for him about most all items, which is probably the reason there is such a high turnover in staff. He advises you bring in your children at any age and he will fix the teeth once they are full grown; he does not fix them.. need a go on.. he should loose his license and compensate the 90 percent of patient which he does not keep photos of in his office.  Respond

15/01/13 5 5 5 5 I have been bringing my children to Dr. Low since 2000 and he and the staff have been fantastic. My two older children have had their braces off for about 7 or 8 years and now my youngest is nearing the end of the process. I have every confidence in Dr. Low's professionalism, knowledge and skills and put my faith in his ability to provide the best care for my children. the Staff have always been friendly and kind to both me and my children. I highly recommend Dr. Low  Respond

22/11/12 1 3 1 1 Dr. Low is part of the larger racket. Get referred to him and the first questions are about how you will be paying.....before seeing the patient. Treatment was to be one year. In my 3rd and i just keep paying with no real indication of when the work will be done. If you question he takes it as a complaint and insult and accuses you of not trusting his work and procedures. He was great until i started to question extra work and more referals all of which i pay out of pocket as my insurance maxed out during year 1. He doesn't care about that because you don't get treatment until he gets paid. Very disappointed. 3rd party dr recommended to finish the work with him because if you go to another you start over and pay many fees again---why can't these "professionals" share x-rays and the like? They work together to screw you but refuse to play in the same sandbox if you move elsewhere. Don't mention seeing someone else for another opinion or you'll pay for that "insult"  Respond

06/05/12 5 5 4 5 Dr. Low has a very well run practice, the staff is very helpful, appointments are always on time. Dr. Low know his field very well and really enjoys his work. The only observations would be that sometimes he seems to be in a rush, and also he deals a lot with teenagers, but when talking to an adult patient, he needs to change his approach and give better explanations. Overall, very recommended.  Respond

21/09/10 5 5 5 5 Having just moved from Asia, we did not have an orthodontist. I actually had made an appt with one in Signal Hill last May but was called on the eve of the appt to cancel as the orthodontist was not taking any new patients! We were referred to Dr Low by a close friend. Dr Low informed me that my son's braces were dated and poorly installed. He was very amicable,informative and explained what the new braces would entail. He even offered to do some of the work that I would otherwise be charged for for free, given that my son already had braces on for 10 months. The first appt went very well - he put my son at ease. We are thankful for the efficient staff. Unfortunate there are no appts available after school though.

08/07/10 3 4 3 3 When we started he seemed nice enough, and his staff knowledgable. Unfortunately that has changed. He is constantly complaining, or bragging about his brilliant kids and his staff is ever changing...the competent staff never stick around. We are pushed through the office like cattle, and no one ever seems to take the time to get to know us, except when it is time to pay. Beautiful staff and technologically advanced office, but NO SUBSTANCE!!!!  Respond

09/02/10 5 5 5 5 I put two sets of braces in my kids mouths... He is good, personable, efficient, but darn it, why are braces so bloody expensive!? It's a racket, but it's not this doctors fault - the system allowed it.

15/09/08 5 5 5 5 Brilliant orthodontist. Look no further - this guy's the best. Staff are very helpful and efficient, the office has cutting edge equipment. I'm not sure how his fees compare to other specialists but his results more than justify the cost of treatment.  Respond

12/09/08 5 5 5 5 DR.LOW is a GEM in the orthodontic industry. We visited 2 other practices prior to meeting him. He is so attentive, punctual, very knowledgeable, friendly, caring, has the latest technology.....I could go on and on. My kids and I adore him, not to mention his staff. Wow, he has a very well ran practice. His receptioist won me over the phone and upon arrival we were not surprised by how smoothly our consultation went from the staff to Dr. Low himslef. I am quite sure you will agree.  Respond

30/01/08 4 4 3 4 I thought Dr. Lowe was fairly good orthodontist. He was friendly, most of his staff were friendly too. The only problem I had was that it was hard to get information about how much longer the treatment would take (already after 2 and a half years) and the scheduling is always difficult because he is so busy... Other than that he seems to be a genuinely good doctor concerned for patients...  Respond

24/04/07 5 5 5 I have been seeing Dr. Low for over 7 years to correct previous treatment administered by another orthodontist. In the entire time I have been his patient he has always been honest and objective. He has always addressed any and all concerns in a timely professional manner. The staff in the office are unbelievably caring, compassionate, and helpful. I will take my children to see Dr. Low, he is an excellent orthodontist.  Respond

12/04/07 4 5 5 We have been with Dr. Lowe for 3 years and find that his experience and expertise were exceptional. He explains everything to you and shows and explains all xrays. Follow ups and adjusting schedules to meet our times was great. It is very important for a child to feel comfortable with a doctor/dentist and Dr. Lowe did that. I would definately recommend Dr. Lowe to anyone who required orthodontics (braces)in anyway.  Respond
