I came to this office after not being seen for several years. The staff from the front desk to the assistants and hygienist even Dr Patel did everything to make me feel comfortable and make me aware of what was being done and thoroughly explained what I needed to have done in the future and why. I feel the staff was very warm, inviting and cared about me as a person and not just a number.

I just want to say that I had a great experience with the Columbia office. I have not been to the dentist in years and they made me feel very comfortable. I went for a cleaning and exam and the hygienist was very gentle and made me feel at ease. Dr. Patel was very informative and answered all my concerns. I would definitely recommend this office to all my friends and family.

They were fabulous with my daughter. Took their time with her but the appointment was actually quick.
Tips & Advices
Emergency care facilities can treat infants and children. Roughly 16 percent of emergency patients are infants and children, so the medical professionals at these facilities typically have strong experience in pediatric emergency care.
The average wait time will depend on the type of emergency care facility.. Wait times typically average less than 20 minutes at an urgent care facility. At a hospital-based emergency care facility that treats life-threatening conditions, wait times can take as long as an hour or more.
Board certification is not required for emergency care facilities. However, the top facilities are often board certified. At hospitals, many emergency care centers require that their physicians be board certified as a qualification for employment. Two boards that handle this type of certification are the American Board of Medical Specialties and the American Osteopathic Board of Emergency Medicine.
Emergency care facilities include those that offer urgent care, and some urgent care facilities offer certain primary care services. At these facilities, patients are usually evaluated upon arrival, and a determination is made as to whether the problem requires emergency care, urgent care, or primary care.
Some medical tests and scans are performed at emergency care facilities. These facilities may perform select X-rays and blood tests if this is deemed necessary to assist your treatment. However, the range of medical tests and scans offered is much more limited than those offered as part of standard hospital care.
