LOVE this dental office and doctor! My situation with coming to Dr. Podratz (or Adam, as he’d intro’d himself) could’ve been awkward and uncomfy. After all, my first visit was for a second opinion on another dentist’s recommended treatment plan for myself and hubby. (Y’all can see my review on here of the other doc if you want the details). I shouldn’t have worried. From the initial phone call to the full exam by Adam, everyone put me at ease. All my questions were explained in detail and all my concerns were put to rest. Adam even did the cleaning himself! (He’s very thorough and gentle.) The biggest difference with this office: they care about patients and their dental health! They’re not going to try to ‘sell’ unnecessary treatments or push patients into doing anything that isn’t clinically warranted. I have full confidence and trust in Adam and his staff to do right by my teeth. That’s a huge relief. The front office — sorry, I suck that I didn’t get a name! — was so helpful too. She emailed me the forms I’d need to release my x-rays from the other doc in plenty of time to have them available for Adam to review AND she even dug into my insurance to reassure that this new exam should be covered. Although, I would gladly pay out of pocket to be seen by this office! Oh — and get this — If the exam wasn’t covered due to insurance limitations, Adam was willing to try to get them to cover a ‘limited exam’ at a lesser charge. That, folks, is a doc who’s not out to make a buck, but to make a patient for a lifetime. And he’s got one in my hubby and me. Highly recommend!!!
