Ratings for Dr. Yelena Obholz
I've been using this dentist since she took over the previous practice and she is fast, gentle, accurate and thorough. I am a little shocked at some of these reviews. The front desk is efficient, the hygienist, whom I've been seeing for over 19 years, is terrific. All dental problems are tracked, sorted, and appropriate. I can't say enough about the whole experience, and I drive almost 2 hours each way. It's worth it.
Dr. Obholz, the staff, and the office in general, are wonderful. I have been going to the office for seven years, and from the moment you enter the office I feel like I’m at home. The staff create a very warm and friendly environment. The cleanings that are provided are meticulous, and both the doctor and her support staff genuinely convey an interest in my dental health and hygiene. I’ve had some complicated procedures done in the office, and the quality of the work is exceptional. Everyone should be so lucky to have such a great dentist.
My whole family uses Dr. Yelena Obholz. Love her! Love her staff! They are always so nice and helpful, positive, reassuring, understanding from the hygenists to the insurance clerk. I have had only great experiences each time. Great quality of service.
The staff is very nice. However, I was quoted incorrectly for two fillings, I had paid the quoted amount on the day of my visit, I then received an additional bill in the mail for twice as much as I had already paid at the office. When I contacted the office regarding the amount billed and the major difference in the amount I was quoted, I was told that I should be happy that my insurance was going to pay any of cost because the office. The office only preforms Resin filling and my insurance does not cover Resin on back teeth. I questioned why I would have been quoted for a service (traditional metal fillings) when they did not even preform the service? I was then asked to go in to side office where I spoke to Yelena's husband, who seemed to be less then interested in the fact that I was quoted incorrectly. The money was not the issue in this case, it was however that they preformed a service that they were fully aware that was not covered and quoted me for based on the metal fillings.
The office was clean but other than that, I don't have any other positives to report. I went to Obholz because she is close to my home and she accepted my insurance. The woman who did my cleaning was fine. Dr. Obholz came in, looked at my mouth for less than a minute and told me I needed all kinds of work. I was so surprised. I put it off until my brother in law came to town a month later. He is a dentist with 22 years under his belt. Mguess what? He disagreed with each line item Obholz recommended. These were not cosmetic procedures. She told me that if I did not get the work done, I would have extensive problems later that would be very costly. Needless to say, I never went back. I found a new dentist and he said my teeth were in good shape.
I've been going to Doctor Obholz for several years now as she took the place of my prior dentist. The office seems good and professional but I always leave with more problems than I came in. Two years ago I went in for dental work (filling, crown) and came out needing a root canal. Recently I had a crown put in for a tooth that was never bothering me (and I was questioning why a crown was needed) and immediately after the molar acted up and I needed another root canal. Now I have to go back to have another crown put in - I wonder if I will thus have to pay for 3 expensive procedures. For now I am wearing the temporary old crown but when I went in to have it cemented back after the root canal, only the dental assistant appeared and did it, but now it is too high so bothering me. Overall, I am giving this office a chance but staring to lose patience at all the bad luck I've been having. JP
BEST DENTIST AROUND! From the decor to the excellent staff, she has it all! I started as a new patient in May of this year, 2011, and I was first seen by Mindy, the hygienist! She started by taking a series of x rays, which might I add was completely fast and accurate! She proceeded with my cleaning and she did an IMACCULATE job. She superceeded my level of expectation!A few weeks later I returned for 5 fillings and 4 crowns. I was unsure of the costs so I decided to consult the front desk and they were very helpful and answered every question I had until I fully understood everything, which most offices I have been a patient of havent done! They were very warm and happy to assisst me! Great girls upfront! Anywho, I went in the back to begin my procedure and Dr. Obholz came in and introduced hersefwith apleasent smile and told me again what I would be recieving! The dental assistants were extremely knowledgeable, Alec and Kat, and assisted the doctor efficiently!!!!!
