The whole staff was very friendly and made sure I was comfortable and at ease. Thus was something very important to me as I suffer from anxiety. Dr. Kortebein talked to ne calmly through every step as he was doing it, so I wasn't startled. Alysa was very understanding and didn't rush me when the procedure was done. She reassured me by telling me she would follow my lead on when I was ready to get up and leave. She explained everything to do and what some of the side effects nay be after I got home. She called on Friday to see how I was feeling and if there were any complications. I am sure this is normal procedure but it made me feel better about my decision. Hopefully I will never need the services of an oral surgeon again, but if I do I will definite choose you. I will also be highly recommending you.

I had a very good experience with Dr. Kortebein and the other doctors during the consaltation and the day of the surgery. They made me feel comfortable when I was anxious and talked me through the procedure as it was happening. I would reccomend this office for wisdom teeth removal.
