Patient Review By Mike D

Dr Chintan Patel and his medical assistant were excellent in my tooth extraction yesterday. Both took the time to explain this procedure, and both made sure that there was very little pain. The whole process took about a half hour, and I was able to walk out and drive a car with no problem. The office staff is very friendly and helpful especially if there were questions afterwards. I would highly recommend Dr Patel and the NORTHEAST office to anyone who needs any type of surgery.

Patient Review By Eleisa M

I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. My fear was off the charts. I had no time to prepare because they called me with a cancellation. The staff was so kind (they even wiped my tears) The doctor assured me with his confidence and kindness. He explained just enough as he worked. He was available if I needed him after the surgery. He called to see how I was doing that evening. If I could give them 10 stars, I would. I was truly blessed that day.

Patient Review By Lisa R

When my dentist told me I needed to have a tooth removed I was a bit nervous. I needn't have been. I'm so grateful I was referred to Dr. Fraser! The entire process was amazing, and the Northeast practice is wonderful - very welcoming, friendly and professional. Dr. Fraser was wonderful and made me feel so comfortable and I knew I was in good hands. The tooth that had been causing me a lot of pain before was taken out painlessly and the area has healed perfectly. I appreciated the follow up call to see how I was doing! I highly recommend Dr. Fraser and his practice!
