How was your experience with the doctor?I was quoted a large amount of money, out of pocket, for a procedure that I was told was not covered by my insurance. Firstly, this price was well beyond the average cost for the procedure, even among other dentists in the area. I contacted my insurance company and was told that they WOULD in fact cover a majority of the procedure if a predetermination was submitted by the dental office. After asking them to please submit this predetermination I was told it would take a few weeks. Cut to a few weeks later and I found out that even after asking multiple times, they never submitted for a predetermination. Bring your teeth elsewhere.

The office was clean and I was seen after a relatively short wait time - Dr. Barsoum still apologized for seeing me later than anticipated, which I appreciated. I was very satisfied with the way Dr. Barsoum cleaned my teeth and felt that she worked efficiently, but was also thorough and careful. Dr. Barsoum will be my new dentist in NYC.

How was your experience with the doctor?This was my second dentist in NYC and Caroline was perfect. Very nice and informative. My last dentist told me a cap/bonding procedure on a chipped tooth would be 100% covered/free under my insurance, only to find out that it wasn't and I owed $250 on the spot! I was furious with them so wanted to make sure I saw someone good this time. Most importantly, Caroline noticed that the bonding that my former dentist did was poorly finished. It was initially a small chip, so the bonding was smoothed and thinned out over the front of my front tooth, but over the next 2 years in between appointments, the bonding began to chip off and you could noticeably see and feel that the bonding had a ridge where it chipped. Caroline said he did not polish it correctly and had to fix his lack of attention to detail. She polished it in minutes (with no extra charge) and it now looks like it was never even there!!

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Barsoum was very professional and friendly. She talked with me for a while before doing a thorough exam. She did not push any unnecessary treatments that were for cosmetic purposes which I very much appreciated. She did the cleaning herself and it was very thorough. I didn't feel that the exam was rushed at all and she helped me find a solution to an issue I have been having for a while. I will definitely see her again.

How was your experience with the doctor?I think it was the best dental experience I have ever had. Barsoum was thorough, informative, and put me at ease. Along with cleaning my teeth, she informed me about what she was doing and what I could do on my own to keep my teeth healthy. I already recommended her to my friend and I will definitely return there myself. The office itself was clean and bright, with good music and friendly staff. Even considering that it was a trip to the dentist overall it was a great experience.
