This was my first sadation surgery and Dr. Amir Guorgui and his staff explained the entire process to my satisfaction. I felt very comfortable throughout the process and appreciated the staff contacting me post surgery to ensure I was recovering well.

I am pleased with my experience with Dr. Gourgui and would recommend him for nervous patients. He was kind and understood that I was anxious about my dental work and his recommendation to use IV sedation ensured that I was comfortable during my procedure.

Super-flexible times, (even after 5PM on weekdays). Full service A+. Everytime I leave I have enough floss to mummify myself and other dental stationaries. I hope this office does NOT change it's staff or its culture. A+++.
