What Our Patients Are Saying

Sara Blanchard

"Dr Reese is easy to talk to and listened to all of the difficulties that I have been having with my jaw pain. I was very happy with my visit."

"I had surgery on my upper and lower jaw, as well as on my chin in December 2020. Never having any kind of surgery prior, I was incredibly nervous. Dr. Behrman answered all my questions with some light humor but at the same time, did not sugar coat anything, which of course, put my mind at ease. To say that I am happy with the results is an understatement. It was life changing. I cannot thank Dr Behrman, his whole team and NY Presbyterian enough for the excellent care I received."
