Dr. Natalie Gaik's Ratings
I never like to leave nasty comments about anyone - especially medical professionals, but I guess in this case it will be OK because Dr. Gaik is the farthest thing from professional. I really am surprised to know that she has been able to obtain a professional designation with what little knowledge she has about dental work, orthodontics, and just plain human empathy and compassion - absolutely terrible bedside manner. I guess when your Dad is a dentist, most everything in life becomes easier. Why bother learning anything when you don't really need to? Save yourself your hard-earned money and worry. Go somewhere else. I am now entering into a second orthodontic treatment (with a new orthodontist - thank God) because the first time around, Dr. Gaik thought it unimportant to correct my overbite, overjets, to leave my teeth on top and bottom completely unaligned and unsupported. This mistake is costing me Big Time.
Where to begin? I'm guessing most of the 'positive' reviews are fake. Natalie is literally the worst. Go to someone else and save yourself your breath. Her receptionists are terribly rude, she herself can get into bad moods and take it out on her patients (which is super unprofessional) and she took my braces off waay to early. My teeth are reverting back to their original crooked form and what do I benefit from it? $$$ down the drain. Thanks Nat, I need braces again, all thanks to your 'treatment.'
I have been a patient of Natalie for about a year and a half, and still am. Her staff are awesome, but Natalie herself isn't. She has been very rude to me the past few appointments, and this recent appointment left me crying because of the way she spoke to me and made me feel. I had jaw surgery just recently and this recent appointment I had was my first time back after it. I had to see her because my surgeon wanted Natalie to put elastics on, because he couldn't the day I had seen him due to some of my hooks being broken and some of my brackets had broke because of the surgery. So I told Natalie what my surgeon told me and why I was there and she just completely ignored what I said and starts being rude and saying my surgeon should be the one to call her explaining everything and not me because I obviously "don't know anything". Oh I'm sorry? Its not like anyone told me that. And its not like I didn't call you ahead of time so you couldn't find this stuff out on your own before my appointment if you hadn't known what needed to be done? She always blames someone else for her mistakes... She will find any excuse to make you look like the bad guy because she's the "professional". She definitely doesn't act like it. I really wanted to cry because of how rudely she treated me. And I don't get that way when I'm upset or mad. But she really hurt my feelings, and I'm still super upset. I honestly never want to go there again after this... Every time I go I'm always harassed by her. Its terrible. I definitely don't recommend Dr. Natalie Gaik to anyone who needs braces.
My daughter is receiving treatment now and I have been happy so far with Dr. Gaik herself and her staff other than the receptionists! They are so rude it's almost unbelievable. I hate calling in, they make me feel stupid. I can't believe that the doctor would allow her staff to speak to customers like this.
Well you get what you pay for certainly applies to Dr. Gaik. I can see why she is cheaper than everyone else. She doesn't have the first clue what she's doing and that's obvious by the reviews. I have never been so shocked or disgusted by a complete lack of competence. Save your money and go to a real orthodontist.
I couldn't be happier. After years of being told by others it would cost a fortune to fix my difficult teeth Dr Gaik was affordable and did an amazing job! So now Im not ashamed to smile or speak and show my teeth. She's also very nice and professional. There was no pressure or arrogance I felt with other local orthodontists. Her staff was pleasant and helpful to me and my husband. I can't thank her enough. I'm telling everyone to go to her!
Dr Gaik and her hygienists/orthodontists are amazing! My daughter loves them, and certainly makes going that much more pleasant. Her receptionists are BRUTAL. Rude, condescending, unfriendly, and entitled. I am forced to talk to them when setting up the next appointment, and I wouldn't Dare have the audacity to say that the suggested date/time won't work for me..... Because there is another level of condescension, rudeness just waiting.. Apparently, there are no other openings... In the history of the world??? Initially I was told that they would work around my schedule... Total lie..
Dr Natalie Gaik is very fair and honest. She is a wonderful professional woman who knows what she is doing. You may have to wait a bit to see her but go to any ortho practice and you will see the same. She is very good with all ages of people. Her clinical staff goes out of there way to make you feel comfortable. The front desk can be sharp at times but do have a busy schd to handle. If you want fair prices and a beautiful smile she is the one you should go. Overall a great experience! Highly reccomend her to all:)
The receptionists here are often rude. The prices here are great though. You have to wait in line some days for like 30 minutes. You have to wait in the waiting room, and the door to the receptionists office is always locked. Why would it be locked? Makes no sense.
