After the braces are gone and the SMILE is BEAUTIFUL, we ask our patients to give us some feedback about their experience with Markin & Park Orthodontics. We want to know what we can do to better our service, improve our communication and what it is that our patients enjoyed most ( or least) about their time with us. This is what some of them have to say:

Name: Anggie H.
"I would highly recommend your office to anyone I know that was in need of orthodontic care. Your staff is extremely nice, they make you feel very comfortable here and they go above and beyond to make sure any concerns or questions are answered. My son, Bradley, has said to me how he likes to come to his appointments because the girls on staff make him laugh. Dr. Markin and Dr. Park have been great to us. It's been a great 2 1/2 years! We couldn't be happier with Brad's great NEW SMILE! Thank you so much!"

Name: Jane T.
"After having all three of our children go thru braces with Drs. Markin and Park, we can truly say we have enjoyed the experience. The doctors and staff are very personable and treat their patients very well. We could definitely recommend their services."

Name: Pam S.
"We have been happy with the Doctors' courses of treatment. Everyone in the office is very helpful and friendly. It's always been easy to get appointments and someone is always available for emergencies. We have been particularly pleased with how cooperative and flexible everyone has been when coordinating treatments and procedures with other doctors and their offices."

Name: Antonette C.
"My experience at Dr. Markin/ Park was more than I had ever expected. the staff was very friendly, professional and the appointments were always as scheduled. I started off with Dr. Markin and he was fantastic. I was a little apprehensive when he decided to sell the practice. Dr. Park stepped in with out any mishaps. Words can not express the joy I feel at this point and time. The results are more than I ever anticipated. Thank you Drs. Markin and Park and staff."

Name: Sherry and Lindsay P.

Name: Bridgette K.
"Drs. Markin and Park were the best! I am extrememly satisfied with the work they did to improve my smile :) ! The staff members were friendly and professional. I would recommend Drs. Markin and Park to my friends, family and colleagues! This was an extremely rewarding experience!"

Name: Terry R.
"I only have positive things to say about this practice! From the very first visit until today, I have been so impressed with your friendliness and professionalism! You made us all feel welcome and created an atmosphere that was comfortable for all of us. Although my boys did not love having braces, they have never complained about having to come here for appointments. They enjoyed all the contests and earning wooden nickels. I thank all of you for helping to create beautiful smiles for my boys. When I look back at our "braces years", I will do so with fond memories of some very special people!"

Name: Ruwanda D.
"I talk about the wonderful atmosphere of yor practice. You explain and discuss the patient's treatment after each visit. You are always available to answer questions and make minor fixes. Dr. Markin has a wonderful "bedside" manner. I believe that Dr. Park will continue in the tradition and philosophy of the practice - valuing your patients and making orthodontics fun. Everyone seems happy and pleasant. It was a pleasure coming to your practice! Thank you!"

Name: Mark B.
