Mark and Steven Bornfeld DDS

Comments

I have been a patient of Dr. Stephen Bornfeld for years, and was very satisfied with Dental care he provided. He is a highly qualified, knowledgeable and professional Dentistry Doctor with years of experience in his filed. He is not only a great Dentist, he is respectful toward his patients, honest and open about someone's options regarding their treatment. He had stayed after long hours if his frail elderly patients, or even not that old ones, but in pain, required his urgent attention. He is all about quality of the care he provides and not so much abut money making as way too many of his colleagues are nowadays. Due to insurance coverage I had to discontinue my follow-ups with Dr. Bornfeld, but when it changed to the better this time, I scheduled my appointment at the soonest time. I live a walking distance from the office, but this the Dentist I would be willing to travel a distance to see. Highly recommend seeking his care.
