My sister just took my niece four year old niece to him. He was very rough with my niece and YELLED at her and basically left the kid traumatized from dentists.

Dr. Gruffi is the best dentist. Yes, the wait can be long, but that is because he will take any emergency, immediately. I would rather wait and have the security of knowing that if someone in my family has an emergency, it will be addressed immediately.

Dr. Gruffi is amazingly patient. He is empathetic, kind, and truly cares about his patients. I know that families who have children with special needs are thrilled with him because he is so good with the children. I don't understand the comments from folks saying that he is not good with children, I imagine that at some point he does just have to do the work and that may require restraining a hysterical child, but I know he is compassionate and caring.

Dr. Gruffi met us at the hospital for some dental work for my son, and despite his incredibly busy office, he was so friendly, had my son on his lap, and made us very calm.

Dr. Gruffi is a fabulous dentist that takes insurance--not many great dentists do--our family loves him....

If you dont mind waiting an hour in his office then I guess he is not so bad. However if you are taking kids to him...FORGET IT!!! He is awful with kids.....the saying is you get what you pay for is true....He is a bit cheaper then most dentists and he accepts practically any insurance, however he needs to make up that money with VOLUME, so if you kid needs a bit of carful slow dentist, forget it. he rushes them and has no patience to deal with the kids.....Over all for myself he was ok/good (if you dont mind waiting) but for kids I would give him an F+

The waiting time can be a bit much, but overall the care that was taken was good and I feel I could recommend him to others. He didn't scare my child when we went to see him.

I don't understand the negative comments - we have all gone to him for 17 years and he is terrific with kids and everyone. He does wonderful work, too. My only negative comment would be that the office is too full, and hence, the afternoon waits are too long. But the other side of the coin is that no emergency is too small and he will come in at the crack of dawn, if need be. Associate dentists are equally as kind and personable. They are patient and will explain anything.

I still have nightmares from those 2 weeks of trying to get my 3 year old' teeth in order. We needed to do some fillings and she continuously screamed and they held her down with her mouth open just to get the work done. It took me a very long time to get her to even agree to go see a different dentist. the only dentist who helped me out with this problem is Dr. Herman, in tallman NY. He has been awesome my daughter is now 8 yr. old and has had allot of work done in her mouth and dr. herman's office has done all of it, and surprisingly she looks forward to going. Where i cant say gruffi is an awful dentist, i can say he did not do well for my child. Most of the work he claims was done needed to b redone within 3 months. I guess my daughter was squirming too much. not a fun experience.

He is the only dentist I would recommend. He works well with my insurance, has the patience and forthought to treat my Autistic son without waiting, and has the hours that make it possible for all. My only gripe is that he needs to expand but other than that, I admire him as a professional, respect his skill as a dentist and most of all, I trust him with all 4 of my boys.

If your child is a little scared of having his/her teeth checked.. I wouldn't recommend taking him/her to him. He was very rough with my 3 year old. Nurses didn't help any while he was being rough. I think he has a very bad temper. Now my 3 year old is very scared to see any dentist in future. I feel real bad taking my child to him. a VERY BAD experience in my whole life. Take your child to someone who is sensitive and have brains how to deal with a child.

I've used Douglas Gruffi for extensive dental work over the years. Like many of us, I've been treated by many health care professionals. I've had the opportunity to be with few who take the time to explain to their patients the exact nature of their problems, what their treatment options are and what is the basis for their recommendation.

Doug is thoughtful and caring with his patients.

My two kids also go to Dr. Gruffi and they both think the world of him. FIVE STARS!!!

Pros: Best Dentist in Rockland

.

He is cheap thats why people use him. He keeps you waiting for hours in his office even thou you have an appointment. To make up for his cheap rates he need to wear-house you to make up the money in volume. Had no patience for my kids. He scared them to death of dentists and some of the work had to be redone. KEEP AWAY
