I was referred to Dr. after a root canal. My dentist could not get all of the root and was worried about infection/abscess. I called and was fit in within a week since it wasn't an emergency. Dr. offered me a Walkman to listen to whatever I wanted to while the drilling happened. This was great because I have two small children and am always listening to Raffi or Barney! My mother was watching my kids on her lunch break and I think she got back 15 minutes late - it was that fast! He came in and was very relaxed and wham, bam before I knew it was done. I don't mean to say he wasn't professional, it's just that he's done so many of these, it is second nature to him. I have had no issues with this tooth, which was infected at the time. I highly recommend Dr. Michaelian.
