Ratings for Dr. Ashkan Hafezi
I saw Dr. Hafezi as an emergency for a toothache on my front tooth. He did some tests and determined the nerve was dying, causing me pain. He offered to do the root canal and I agreed. The next day I was pain free. He and his assistant were very efficient and respectful of my comfort. Since the procedure he and his staff have followed up with me twice. I would highly recommend him.
I had extermely Bad experience with this doctor. He ruin my tooth. I went to him for root canal, after root canal , I had exteme pain for weeks, and then months. He gave me strong pain killers and two course of steriod. I went to see another endodontist for second opinion. He took an xray and said, Dr hafezi went too far down than roots and he left a broken instrument inside. hafezi inssited n i see an oral medicine, and hes ssaid he believed it was not my tooth, it was something wrong with my oral health. I went to see an oral medicine specaialist, I paid 360.00 for the visit, the oral medicine specailatist siad there was absolutley Nothing wrong with my oral healh and the issue was tooth! I still have problem with the tooth.
This guy is a pro. If you are lucky enough to be in your care you are in good hands. While I was in the patient's chair he was explaining a procedure to another patient. She was rude and abrupt with him but he never lost his cool. He ended up beginning my procedure half an hour late. For this he discounted the rate. I've never experienced something like this from a dentist. He was straightforward with me about the procedure as well. He said I had only 50% chance to save the tooth. I really appreciated this kind of honesty. I paid to have him attempt it anyways, but I was well aware of the risk of failure. Luckily, the procedure was a success.
I went for emergency consultation to Dr. Hafezi. It was Friday afternoon and I was last patient. He seemed to be in a much of a hurry. Just briefly glanced at the x-ray from my dentist and told me I need : 1. another root canal 2. possibly surgery after or 3. extract the tooth. He was ready to leave when I asked him to drain the abscess of my tooth that was giving me much pain. Dr. Hafezi drained the abscess. Thankfully the wait time to see him for root canal was 9 weeks so my dentist send me to another specialist from Vanedno half a block away. This doctor took his time accessing the situation and multiple x-rays. In the end he did a surgery and the problem was a debris round the root. It saved me unnecessary procedure of another root canal plus changing the crow on that tooth around $2500 or more.
Great dentist! He took me in for an emergency root canal and I was seen right away . He was fast and efficient and very skilled. I am a nervous patient so was given sedation before the procedure so was so calm and relaxed I didn't notice anything till it was over! I recommend him especially for nervous patients.
The other night I called Dr. Hafezi has I had a sporatic dental problem arise during pregnancy. I was surprised with how promptly he responded to my concerns and helped put me at ease. He asked me many questions and listened to all my concerns. He booked me in for an appointment right away and helped alievate my stress level as a first time mom to be! :-) Also, I'd like to add that I had a root canal done by Dr. Hafezi years ago and it was very successful (it was a front tooth) and it is still white till this day with no issues. Thank you kindly for all your hard work and dedication to the endodontist field! -Sophia Agalou
