Bravo to Dr. Howatt – Just had my 6 month check up with Dr. Howatt. I have been a patient of Dr. Howatts for more than 10 years and from day "1" felt secure that I had found a dentist that was not only reliable but also cared for me. Dr. Howatt has always been extremely professional and "right on top of" the fast moving dental technology. But more important she has never let the technology surpass her humanity. Dr. Howatt always explains every procedure in detail including cost. Our relationship is indeed a collaboration. It is a pleasure to be Dr. Howatts patient and a part of the Madison Dental Group.
Stay as far away from Dr. Howatt as you can – Unless you are seeking only to get a cleaning, stay away from Dr. Howatt. I used to be her patient for over 2 years and had no major complaints about her services while they remained basic: cleanings and check ups. However, when I needed to receive a more thorough dental care and it was time for her to demonstrate her skills, she failed at every level -- skill, compassion, and consideration. I cannot tolerate unprofessional treatment and poor work that needs to be redone. So my advice is to stay away.
Dr. Marylouise Howatt -- A Fine, Considerate Dentist. – My wife and I have been clients of Madison Dental Group for over twenty years. Our dentist, Dr. Marylouise Howatt, is outstanding. Dr. Howatt is smart, polite, and extremely professional. She is terrific. We are very satisfied with her work. The staff at Madison Dental Group is also competent and congenial.
A happy patient of Dr. Howatt's for 20 years! – Dr. Mary Louise Howatt was recommended to me by a co-worker in 1991. Subsequently, I have been seeing her every six months...regardless of my change in work or dental coverage. She and the staff at Madison Dental Group...especially Susan...are courteous, professional, gentle and funny -- in short, a fabulous team. I've recommended the doctor to several friends. And I've run into acquaintances and friends in their waiting room who feel the same way. As a midtown professional who appreciates early appointments and gets in and out before the day fully begins, I appreciate their punctuality. I am a "lifer" with Dr. Howatt!
Horrible – I saw Dr. Howatt and she is the worst dentist I have ever visited. I found her to be rough and extremely arrogant. She has an attitude and she doesn't listen. I found the whole experience painful and very frustrating. I would never go back! Avoid her if you can.
Wonderful Service – Madison Dental offers great service. The staff is extremely helpful, efficient, and friendly. Mary, Heidi, and Stephanie are a great asset to the office. They are excellent in their job and make Madison special. But my hygienist, Susan, is truly a wonder. She is funny, efficient, personable, and down to earth. She brings a lot of heart to the office.
Dr. Press, Paula and Heidi keep me coming back – I have been treated by Dr. Press for over 26 yrs. He is the kindest, most thoughtful dentist. I am 58yrs old and have experienced a number of dentist who did not compare. He has a wealth of information and I always go home learning something new. I totally trust my mouth to this most experienced, excellent dentist. Paula is a wonderful hygienist. She is extremely thorough and takes her time to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy. She is very personable and makes you as comfortable as possible. She has a great sense of humor and actually makes this uncomfortable procedure, very tolerable. Heidi completes the package. She is so lovely, friendly, competent, and helpful. She goes out of her way to get you appointments and make you feel you're important. I look forward to seeing her on my visits. I practically feel I'm visiting a relative. I highly recommend these three talented professionals or I wouldn't be schlepping from Westchester.
Great office, Great location – I have been going to madison dental for 3 years now and I am very happy with the treatment I have received. The receptionists are always curteous and professional and help me coordinate appointments around my very busy schedule. I am extremely dental phobic and Dr. Mender always puts me at ease in the chair. I highly recommend the practice to anyone looking for a new dentist.
One stop – Best value in NYC. General practice and specialist care all in the same office and they accept many insurances. A modern clean office with a friendly staff, this is a rarity these days. I was at my MD's office the other day and was shocked at the total lack of care by the staff. The staff here cares, everybody makes mistakes, they are few at Madison Dental. Considering the number of people seen its amazing!
Worst claim processing of any doctor's office ever! – I had been a patient of Dr. Levin for many years and have referred him to other also. I had no problems until recently when I got a new Dental insurance provider and Madison Dental processed a claim for my August 2008 visit. My insurance was active as of July 2008. Madison Dental sent in claims from 2007 to AFLAC and I was refused benefits. We call the dental office and they assured me that they sent the proper bills. Wrong! Aflac said the dates were pre - coverage. It is now October 6th and we still are having problems as now Aflac said I have made more claims than necessary on my new coverage when I only visited the Dentist on August 8th for the first time with this insurance ID. Some how the claim submitting department at Madison Dental has regressed into chaos! I am writing a letter to Dr. Levin to tell him that his office staff is doing him a disservice with billing and erroneous claims to my insurance.
