My wife called his office to schedule me for one of their “Free Consultation” offer. When I got there and was taken to an examination room, the Doctor came in and asked me what the problem was. I showed him my broken tooth. He looked at my broken tooth and said “it needs to be fixed”(which was obvious and I did not have to be a dentist to know that!). Any way he left the room without any more explanation.
A couple of minutes later his assistance came in with a $150.00 “estimate” for examination. I told her I’m here for a consultation that is only possible after an examination, and how could you offer a “free consultation” and charge for the examination! She did not have any answer, so she went and got the doctor to answer my question. When the doctor came back to the room and I asked him the same question, he said “you need to see another doctor!”
I just left his office thinking to myself, what happened to “honesty” and “where are those good old fashioned values?”
I hope this doesn’t happen to you.

I went to Dr. Greding who is located in Gilbert about a year ago for a cleaning. Long story short I was told I take very good care of my teeth but there are a few issues which had to do with 4 cavities. Before going there I had no pain or discomfort with my teeth. The way they went on & on about how my fillings are old I just got the feeling that these concerns were unnecessary and maybe money driven. These issues were going to cost me about $900.00 plus. I never went back.
Now as far as Dr. Garelick's is concerned I trust him. I went for a cleaning already thinking this was going to be costly because of my previous Dental appointment. I never mentioned what Dr. Greding found, I only mentioned that I have tooth bothering me. My tooth was sensative to heat (which just started a couple of days before my cleaning appointment) they veiwed the xray 's and found that my tooth had an old filling and the cavity was actually under the filling and being that I'm senstive to heat it meant that the nerve had been compromised. I needed a root canal. ( i guess Dr. Gredings office was truthful about 1 of the 4 cavaties) Dr. G did the root canal the same day. Besides the root canal I don't have any other cavaties and was told again how well I take care of my teeth. I guess the 3 other cavities Dr. Greding found magically disappeared.
Dr. G didn't strike me as money driven the work done by him was good. I watched TV while they did the root canal and I was suprised how quick he was done.
I'm very happy I was referred to him!!!!
He gets 10 thumbs up!!!!!!!!!!

I know many families with children who love Dr. G. My own children have been going there since they were in diapers. He is a wonderful doctor with a great bed side manner. The patients needs are met and he truly cares. Just look at the wall of all the smiling children's photos he has. He is a father himself and his wife is a pediatrician, I think they understand children well. In regards to the last reviewer, if Dr. G questioned anyone's ""parenting skills"", I feel it was not Dr. G's reputation that was tarnished, but rather an embarrassment to the reviewer.

Dr. Garelick was not happy with my parenting skills and went on to share it with our staff members. He then proceeded to send me a letter recommending that the next time I should send my children in for a cleaning with ""some"" other family member, or just stay in the waiting room and ""read""! He is rude and has no bedside manners, and then he talks about his patients and how he would like to dismiss them. I happily dismissed myself and my children!
