Save yourselves. STAY AWAY! 7/5/2010

I was referred to him by my dentist, Dr. Lopez. Since I adore Dr. Lopez, I didn't try to look around for a good Oral Surgeon. Neither did I check out this guy on the internet after the referral. What a mistake! What a disaster! I needed wisdom tooth extraction. I guess that is considered one of the simplest procedures in Oral Surgery. A dental student could have done that, and better! Barkin is the most irresponsible professional I have ever dealt with. The process took 10 minutes. He didn't explain anything beforehand. I had to ask questions and every time it was like I was pulling his teeth for him to answer my questions! So he came in, gave a few lidocaine shots, picked up the pliers and kept pulling until the teeth came out and he left! The assistant told me I could go and gave me a piece of paper as instructions and told me I could rinse my mouth which was incorrect according to their own instructions!). Then comes the pain and then fever! I call and ask for him. No call back. I call again and 8 hours later he calls back. I go in the next day again and he takes a quick look( 5 seconds!) and he's like: ""yeah, there is some pus. I'll give you antibiotics!!!!"" No explanation of what is wrong, where is infected, why it happened, etc. I have to ask questions and again he is more than unhappy to answer! I go to pick up the antibiotics and the order is not there!! I have to arrange for it myself. Two days later there is still pain and fever and I call and ask for a call back. NONE. Next day I call again and there is only a Voice mail. I leave a message and no call back. Another message next day and no call back! I was in pain and agony and couldn't believe this level of irresponsibility after this guy had already pocketed hundreds of dollars from me, for 10 minutes, for such a terrible job. I am never going back to him. This guy would not have survived in the outside world if he wasn't in the same office as good doctors like Dr. Lopez. I don't know why they don't get rid of him. Save yourselves and your teeth and stay away. Cons: Terrible job, Uncaring and Irresponsible more

Exceptional Dental Work 4/6/2010

A co-worker turned me on to Pacific Dental Associates and Dr. Duhn and I've taken her out to lunch on two seperate occasions to thank her. Dr. Duhn is quite simply the best dentist I've ever had in my 61 years on earth. Besides being a very exceptionally gifted dentist\r he has a way of putting you at ease and explains what he's doing as he does it without talking down to you.\r I recommend him wholeheartedly and without reservation. Dr. Barkin, the staff oral surgeon, should be nicknamed 'painless'. He removed 6 teeth in one sitting in under 10 minutes and the most painful part of the procedure was the novocaine injections which were more annoying than painful. The admin staff is top notch and very knowledgeable and helpful when it comes to your dental insurance and billing issues.\r In summary if you need dental work of any kind and you're within a comfortable distance Pacific Dental Associates is the place to go. Pros: on time, caring, informative, very knowledgeable Cons: after 12 visits there aren't any drawbacks more

Need a caring and competent dentist for the whole family? 3/4/2010

I only have glowing reviews for Dr. Lopez. My entire family has seen her for years: my husband and I think she's great, and my children simply adore her. She's caring, smart, and very respectful, great with adults, and awesome with kids. Best of all, she makes everyone feel quite comfortable with her great bedside manners. On top of it all, she also has a great reputation in clinic and academic circles at the local dental schools. Pros: Great for both, preventive and restorative dentistry Cons: Hard to get appointments, specially at end of year more

Widely recognized group! 3/4/2010

These dentists collaborate with some of the leading specialists, and with prominent referring dentists and physicians in the City to provide quality dental care. Pros: High level of excellence more

Have lots of respect for this doctor 3/2/2010

Dr Cohan is a recognized dentist, and a faculty member at the University of the Pacific. He saw me for an emergency when my regular dentist (his partner) was on vacation, and I was impressed by his knowledge and caring demeanor. Pros: Kind and gentle doctor more

No need to fear seeing a dentist anymore! 10/7/2008

Dr. Lopez is the best dentist in San Francisco, Heads Down! I searched high and low all over the Bay Area for someone like her, until a close friend recommended her to me. \r \r She is extremely well qualified, and her bedside manners are the absolute best. I have recommended her to my family and friends and each one of them raves about Dr. Lopez. \r \r The only drawbacks are that they do tend to have a long waiting list for appointments (but worth it!), and that parking (street or garage) may be difficult. \r \r How many of you look forward to seeing your Dentist? \r With Dr. Lopez, I Do! Pros: Bedside Manners, Competent, Caring Cons: 3-4 month waiting list for a dentist appointment (learned this the hard way when I canceled) more

second only to brushing your teeth 9/27/2006

I had no idea that a dentist could be so thorough! On my initial visit, Dr. Lopez measured and recorded every detail of my teeth, gums, bite, jaw. She very clearly explained to me every recommendation for maintaining the health of my mouth, including procedures, and even simple changes in my flossing technique. Also, she was sensitive to my lack of dental insurance and helped me prioritize my options for a longterm plan. Best dental consultant I've ever seen. Pros: I feel very secure in her professional opinion. more

I would highly recommend her! 2/3/2006

I have been Dr. Lopez's patient for several years. I've had regular check-ups and a crown done in her clinic and never had any problems. Dr. Lopez is skillful and caring. Her assistant and staff are knowledgeable and courteous. Overall, the environment is not intimidating at all. The only issue is that you might have to wait to get an appointment. However, I generally call her if I need to see her in a hurry so I've never had to wait more than a day. Overall, my experience has been relatively painless at her clinic. Pros: Bedside Manners, Competent, Caring Cons: Parking more

Best dentist we ever had 9/19/2005

Believe me, she is the BEST dentist we have ever had, no pain, very professional and will take whatever time is needed for the right treatment. I love her. My kids love her and they are never afraid. In summary, each visit is like going to visit a friend. Pros: Everything Cons: Long waiting list more

Big Smile 2/2/2005

Esther is wonderful! I travel from Oakland to see her and my sister flys up from Orange County to see her! I will never go to another dentist ever! Esther and her staff are kind and helpful and always on time. She even helped me get over my fear of having my teeth scraped by the metal pokey thing! more

We love this doctor 11/18/2004

Dr Lopez has been our dentist for 15+ years. My husband is an M.D, and works in the same building as her. He says that Esther is highly respected by her peers and works with the best specialists in town. Esther has done beautiful cosmetic work for my husband, and her bedside manners are the absolute best (plus shes wonderful and patient with my hyper boy). Dr Lopez really takes cares of her patients (returns calls, gets you in, listens and explains things, etc), and we are quite comfortable being under her care. Pros: Very competent, Takes care of patient, Best bed-side manners Cons: , Poor street parking more
