I have had the most unprofessional experience with Dr. KatKoff. My children's dentist relocated about a year ago, and I had to change dentists. We went to see Dr. Katkoff as the new dentist. The first time we went to see him he seemed friendly, but something wasn??t quite right and I could not put my finger on it. He refused to seal my daughter's permanent teeth until we dealt with her cavity he claimed she had. I had an uneasy feeling about him. He scheduled an appointment for 3 months later (which I felt was an awfully long time away) but I ended up having to reschedule it. We were in the middle of closing on our new house. It took another three months to get another appt. In the mean time I was thinking of looking for another dentist, but due to personal circumstances, it was better to try and get the kids in to see him.

When we arrived they did not allow me to go back with my children but allowed the other parents to. When my children were through, Dr. Katkoff asked me to come back where the receptionist area is. Then he proceeded to yell and berate me in front of other families, staff, and my OWN CHILDREN! He proceeded to yell at me in a very ugly and unprofessional way about how if we missed any more appointments with him he wouldn't see us again. He also stated that my son has 5 cavities (funny seeing as how he has sealants and has had them since his permanent teeth came in) and implied that I should be ashamed that I don??t have my children take care of their teeth. It was terribly embarrassing and I was in utter shock!

First of all, my children brush their teeth twice a day and floss at least 3 times per week. Prior to seeing Dr. Katkoff, they both had the same dentist since they were little (they are 13 and 9) and we never had this sort of thing with cavities or problems with cavities in the past. Their former dentist also would seal their permanent teeth as they came in. It??s a very quick and simple procedure to paint the teeth. Matter-of-fact my daughter had never been known to have ANY cavities and Dr. Katkoff yells at me that she has two of them! If the kid??s cavities were so urgent why did we have to wait three months in between rescheduled appointments? Why in the world would he terrify my children in that manner by publically yelling at me in front of them? I tried to say, ??Can we please go into your office??... But he kept cutting me off.

I have never seen such a display of unprofessionalism in my life. Needless to say, I did not schedule another appointment with this man. There is something very, very wrong with him. I would go so far as to say he doesn??t need to practice anymore. One of the mother??s of the other children felt so bad for me and said, ??Are you ok honey???.Just the worst experience. Not to mention the office environment has two toys and a TV. The toys are for toddlers and there is nothing for the older children to play with or read. It??s terrible and run down. ..Stay very far away from this dentist.

(I did want to add, that the reason I chose him was due to the reviews here on Yahoo. They sounded so good and I looked him up to make sure he had no complaints with dental board, etc?he was clean? so we went to him. It just goes to show you can??t trust reviews when they are so limited.)
