Ratings for Dr. Joseph H. Goth
I went to Doctor Goth for my wisdom teeth removal. Everything went well. A few years later I went for TMJ issues and he was very rude and condescending to me just because I'm young. He also told me to stop eating salads and chewy foods, which I already knew. He tried to get me to go see his doctor friend for a mouth guard. The guy only does it for cash. Then he told me to come back in two weeks. Nothing would be resolved by then. I was disappointed in his treatment of me. He was not friendly. He did not welcome me back to his office. I left crying. His staff was excellent though. Shame he was so unprofessional because he is very close to where I live.
I went to Dr. Goth for my wisdom teeth removal and it was an excellent procedure! Initial consultation was short and straight-forward and they had me in for the removal less than a week later! The surgery was WAY easier than anyone said the procedure would be. Next to painless procedure and short recovery time! He took care of me like a daughter and made the process one that was so smooth and easy. By day 3, I was eating food and exercising regularly. He did such great work to ensure that I was healed perfectly by 2 weeks post surgery! Could not recommend any more highly!
Dr. Goth's office helped me escape a painful ordeal that had been going on for many weeks. Clearly this should of been the first door I walk through. With failing teeth he removed them within 2 hours and now on road to recovery. All done with less pain then a single tooth pulled 2 weeks prior. Dr. Goth is the only choice in Pittsburgh.
My wife and I have both had to have teeth removed and then have dental implants inserted with titanium screws by Dr. Goth. I have to say that Dr. Goth is an awesome oral surgeon! He actually called on the weekend to check on my wife's condition. As for me, I was extremely nervous about having my tooth pulled. He recommended that he perform the surgery while I was sedated, which he prefers to do with patients that have high blood pressure and that are anxious about the procedure. He is such a skilled oral surgeon that I woke up with very little pain. I never even had to take the prescription pain medicine, just ibuprofen. I would highly recommend him.
I had an emergency. Back molar cracked down to below the gum line on the afternoon before I was leaving for vacation. Being new to the area, I googled, called a family dentist in my area who referred me to Dr. Goth. Upon explaining what happended and my predictament Dr. Goth told me to come in. He saw me after his last appointment and pulled the broken tooth. Absolutely no pain. He and his staff were very professional and compassionate. Highly recommend him.
My first impression of the staff was that they were unprofessional. The front desk woman gave me such a rough time about not bringing an xray that i was never told to bring! She insisted she told me but after explaining the events that lead up to the appointment she then realized she had in fact NOT told me. She then started being so nice to me because she realized she was the one at fault. Dr Goth himself is wonderful and caring. Certainly wants to help people and truly cares about his patients.
I have been afraid of getting my wisdom teeth out for years. A friend recommended him to me and I must say that I was very impressed. I would recommend Dr. Goth to anyone who needs wisdom teeth removed. Very nice and VERY good. I experienced ZERO pain after surgery and didn't even need to take the pain medication. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Though it had been a few years ago, I remember Dr. Goth very well: BTW - I hate to go to the dentist! Yet when I was seen by Dr. Goth for extraction of a broken tooth, I only felt a small twinge of discomfort (not even "pain") When I asked if he was starting now, he said "I'm done" That's the kind of dental surgeon I will always keep in my address book!
