Ratings for Dr. Elijah Saikaly
I paid over $7500 for a treatment that was supposed to last for 2 years. It is almost 4 years now and still my teeth are not straight. My bite is ruined as a result of the changes. He likes to say that everything is going as"planned". You will notice his reluctance to help once you have paid the total amount for the procedure. Every time i visit, he keeps saying that my teeth are fine now. He clearly doesn't know how to fix this so is waiting on me to say to end the procedure. I would not recommend this guy to anyone. If anyone knows how I can proceed legally against this guy then that would help.
My son finally decided that it was time to get braces after many years of debating the subject, but he wanted to interview Orthodontists himself because he is very particular (he was 19 then). I told him I would pay for 2 consultations and he could pay for 1, then make his decision. He chose Dr. Saikaly and after 2 years with Invisalign, he LOVES his new smile and his confidence has sky-rocketed. Thank-you for taking such good care of my boy! :)
If you want to throw your money away, this is the Orthodontist for you!! Dr. Saikaly removed my daughter's braces (at a price of course) ensuring me that everything was going as planned! When I had concerns about the way her tooth was coming in, I made an appointment to have it checked...and again was told that everything was going well! Today we went to see Dr Saikaly and he recommends that my daughter have the braces put on AGAIN (at my expense) and also charge me for a year of treatment to fix the problem that was supposed to be fixed the first time!! Does this sound like someone who graduated top of his class????
My experience with Dr Saikaly was very professional. He is conducted my treatment methodically and took the time to walk through all avenues of my treatment options, keeping in mind my feelings and concerns. I would recommend Dr Saikaly to anyone who wants professional results.
Dr. Saikaly has poor communication skills. While every case is different and no orthodontist can be expected to predict exactly how long treatment will take Dr. Saikaly has been reluctant to provide even a time range for how much longer my treatment will take. I have found him to be arrogant and unpleasant. If you are an older patient I would not recommend this office. In addition, the office hours are very restrictive.
