Dr. David Behrman, head of Weill Cornell Medicine’s dentistry, oral and maxillofacial surgery program, explains what patients can expect when they come to his team for care.

What Our Patients Are Saying


"I had UJS early in 2022 and had an amazing experience with Dr. Reeve! Pre-surgery I consulted with Dr. Reeve and she shared all the necessary information (benefits, risks, etc) and also connected me with a previous patient of hers who had a similar case. During and after surgery, Dr. Reeve has been wonderful in her bedside manner, responsiveness and assistance as I went through recovery. I even had some unexpected benefits with my breathing and quality of life that I didn’t even expect! I would recommend that anyone looking for an oral surgeon that wants someone straightforward and transparent and does great work go with Dr. Reeve!"

"I have spent my entire adult life suffering from chronic jaw and coinciding facial pain along with severe headaches. I am so grateful to Dr. Behrman and his outstanding team for identifying the real source of what I was always sold on as TMJ. Dr. Behrman deserves the highest of praise for explaining the issues, managing expectations, ensuring a successful result and providing timely responses whenever I had any concerns. Excellent surgeon while displaying compassion, empathy and concern. Cannot say enough great things about his work. I am lucky and grateful to have been introduced to him and to have been under his care."

Talking about Maryam Farag, D.M.D.

"Dr. Maryam Farag placed an implant for me. I was awake the whole time and she was magnificent. The needles needed to get me numb were painless and trust me when I say, I am a big baby when it comes to that!! Throughout the whole procedure she was so attentive to me and how I was feeling and asking me if I was okay. I could see my implant on an x-ray and it seemed perfectly placed to allow a tooth to fit nicely between two teeth. If you want quality work you should see her."
