Had very unpleasant experience getting root canal treatment from this dentist and his assistant. Novacaine wore off too soon and he wouldn't stop and take the time to give me more. I've had many treatments from other top notch endodontists so I know that this was not right. Neither he nor his assistant offered me one word of comfort or help. Finally, after I nearly forced him to stop, he used some type of anesthetic, but by then I was practically in shock, tears streaming down my face. The stuff he used still didn't work very well, and he kept leaving to treat someone else, in another room. The actual root canal may turn out well, but I have had trouble sleeping ever since this experience, and will never go back.
Pros: can't think of any right now--there are plenty of good DDS's in Portland
Cons: low standard of care for pain control or comfort of patient
