Ratings for Dr. Alli M. Guleria
I agree with the people who said that Dr. G is all about money. That is absolutely not the case. She has treated three of my chldren and they all turned out with beautiful smiles. You don't go to the cheapest person in town for great smiles...it costs money. She and her staff have been nothing but wonderful to our children and even their dentist says that she did a great job! I don't know why the reviews below are the way they are. She has been practicing for over 20 years with only excellent results. Go to her. Don't read the haters.
AWESOME!! Don't listen to the haters! She does not have an 'attitude' and I do not feel that she is 'all about the money.' She has consulted with my son twice, even taking additional x-rays at no charge. She is knowledgeable, professional and wants the best possible result for her patients. Additional charges are for non-compliance and all orthodontists charge extra for lost/broken appliances. Furthermore, if your child is compliant, you won't have to worry about those charges. My boys were treated by a nearby dentist whose charges were similar, but treatment AND results were poor. Dr. Guleria takes the time to explain everything and answers all your questions. She is great with teenagers and speaks directly to them. My 19yr old has an aversion to dentists after his horrible experience with the dentist who did his original orthodontia. He wishes I knew about her when he was 10 b/c he would not be in the predicament he is in now. Luckily, my daughter won't suffer the same fate!
Best and friendliest doctor ever. I also can't believe those bad reviews. We have been there many years and it is only getting better. Honest and caring, we just love everyone there. We have always gotten appt. right away or could just go stop by if something needed to be done right away. I can't say enough good things about the office, dr. guleria and their staff. Yes, they do make you feel liek family! Don't listen to those other reviews!!
I really don't know what everyone is talking about with Dr. Guleria's office being all about money. It is in no way about money, but instead quality service. You get what you pay for...she is sincere, her staff are excellent, and I feel the patients that are complaining are patients that have issues with all offices and charges. In this day and age when you are treated as a number, this office treats you like family. Really very sad to see such remarks made about a fantastic office. I wouldn't take any of my children elsewhere.
Dr. Guleria is amazing. She is amazing with children and makes sure you understand exactly what's going on. As for the negative comments, it's unfortunate. Orthodontics is not inexpensive. And I strongly recommend not going with the 'cheapest' person you can find. Dr. Guleria gives children (and adults) beautiful smiles and healthy teeth. Period.
We are very disappointed with service provided to two of my children at Dr Guleria's office. Dr Guleria's office is all about money. During signing of the contract they were nice and polite and quoted a competitive rate, please be aware that once you are in, they will increase the price and extend the treatment, and you are stuck. They do not even see your child and still charge you and say this is part of the deal. Dr Guleria never checks your child the assistants do all the job. No personal touch, just a money making business for them. Even to get an appointment its very hard, they always say " unfortunately this is all we have". Unfortunately this is the worst practice of any service provider I have been. Couple other friends of ours moved their kids during the treatment to another orthodontics as they were so unhappy. I will never recommend anyone to this practice. There are so many other good orthodontics in the area, please use them. Read this review and make a better choice.
I am very disappointed in Dr. Guleria. Just like the first person mentioned, she is artificially pleasant, and shows her true side once you ahve signed the contract and started the treatment. She pushed us to get the braces for our kid, and had him go through surgical procedures to remove bay and adult teeth. She does not do the work herself, but has her technicians do all the work. And she has an " I am better than everyone" attitude. In short, she is as uncaring and money driven as they come. Regret signing up with her. Might even look for another doctor to finish the work. Would never recommend her to anyone.
Dr Guleria and her staff are very friendly, but not in a genuine way. Dr. Guleria gave me quite a sales pitch during my consultation. She also quoted me the least amount of all the orthodonists I went to see. After I signed on the dotted line and had my first visit, things changed. She wasn't quite as warm and friendly. I felt like I was in a body shop - in and out. Also, her office hours are very inconvenient. When one of my brackets came off and I needed to have it put back on right away because the wire was poking at the side of my mouth, resulting in sores, I couldn't get an appointment right away. I had to wait 2 days. Finally, I opted not to complete my treatment with her and went to another orthodontist. The only great thing about her office is how nice it is. But honestly, I would much rather go to an office not so state of the art and have good service.
I had very bad experience there. They treated me differently before and after I signed the contract. Before, they were very nice and patient, explained that they are more expensive than other places because their services are better. But later I found it's totally wrong, Dr Guleria always ask nurses to do the braces work, not doctors. I was even charged extra money for their fault. Please carefully read their contract before sign it! Their braces are easier to be broken and you are charged for it. I wasted a lot of money there and finally transfered to another Doctor, where I realized Dr. Guleria's office is 100% money driven.
