The Patient Experience and Testimonials
Tell us your story.
Patient care is the foundation on which we have built our business. Our patient’s experiences define us as a practice. We value their time, patience and integrity.
Here’s what they’re saying about us:
Last month I had gum grafting surgery with Dr. Rappaport. He is a perfectionist and I found the outcome of his work outstanding. He is also a very kind and caring person who was there for me and my husband when we had questions and concerns following the surgery. Not many dentists will take the time to call you personally to follow-up several times afterward. His assistant Sharon was there for us too, and we were able to speak with her also several times post surgery. We live out of town so it was very comforting to know that they were there for us at any time. The office is very professional and you feel like you are in good hands no matter who you speak to. I have more surgery that needs to be done, and I will not hesitate to schedule with Dr. Rappaport and his team.
Thank you for checking in with me, all is well.
I greatly appreciate the care you and your team provided. I don't think I have ever left a doctor's visit bragging about it before.
I appreciated you and your team, it wasn't a (dentist) Periodontics visit, it felt more like you care and you were helping me with my problem.
Be assured I will refer you to who I can.
I'm a long time patient to this office. I was a patient of Dr. Sturdivant many years ago. My patient record shows the span of time in decades. I have had good and excellent service.
Today I must announce the greater than excellent service I have received consistently from your dental hygienist Jean McLaughlin. This professional have cleaned and cared for my teeth. This professional has taught me new ways to care for my teeth. When I am in her chair and she is caring for my teeth, I feel totally at ease. She has such a tender and soft touch that I often fall asleep while she is cleaning my teeth. She informs me of possible problem areas and what to do to prevent the problem. She demonstrates what I should do to prevent the problem. And then as I practice what she has demonstrated, she corrects my actions and explains what I am doing wrong and why its wrong. Often I tell Jean that my teeth love her, and I mean it!!
Not only does she do that, but she works with me around my work schedule. And that is critical for me because I live and work in Dallas, Texas. As often as possible I combine business travel to Seattle and teeth cleaning four times per year. When business travel is not available, I travel on my own.
Jean has helped me also by: telling me when it's time to see Dr. Schuler because of a potential problem she sees in my mouth; making teeth cleaning suggestions and questions for me to consider when I visit my prosthodontist, Dr. William F. Schmidt in Burien, WA; suggesting dental aids for teeth cleaning.
When my friends ask me to refer a dental team, I state, "Pacific Northwest Periodontics". And then I tell them to only let Jean clean their teeth because of the GREAT care and service she professionally provides to me. Truthfully, I cannot praise her enough!! I am GREATLY SATISFIED with her professionally rendered service. Please do not loose her.
Sincerely, Truthfully and Respectfully,
Mr. Daryle S. H
"Dr. Schuler and his team are consummate professionals. Every step of the process, from initial consultation to post-surgery follow-up, was done with care and support. I highly recommend them for all periodontal and implant procedures."
"I had my left upper gum area grafted in September 2012. Dr. Schuler and his team did a wonderful job before, during and after my surgery. I'm very satisfied with my results and so happy that part one is over. I'll be scheduling soon to get the other side done....by Dr. Schuler of course!"
"Happy Birthday to one of the finest people I have ever met! Thank you for being my periodontist, and giving me your very best care, too. Enjoy your day!"
“I just had my 4th and 5th dental implants placed by Dr. Schuler. He is exceptional both in his demeanor and technical skills. I've had perfect results in the case of each implant. I really appreciate how Dr. Schuler has personally taken the time to explain the procedure in detail and answer all my questions. Sinus lift surgery is tricky, and I needed to understand it fully, including the possibility of any problems that might develop. None have! He and my dentist have worked very smoothly as a team in my dental treatment.”
“My experience was excellent through the whole process of getting a dental implant with Dr. Rapaport and his team. The staff the technicians and the Dr. were all "first tier" in quality.“
"Not so recent as of this date. It did take a while for me to decide that implants were the best method to solve my loss of several teeth. Through the information that I received from doctor and staff, I "relented" and went forth. This is one of my better life decisions. Hopefully, I will not need further implants (I am now 80), but I would not hesitate to go forth again, even with the few years left of my life to truly appreciate the comfort and convenience of the procedure. Thank you for your service and courtesy to me."
"Excellent customer service - support staff are super friendly."
"Getting a dental implant for the first time is a daunting thought. I was not looking forward to the experience, but found that Dr. Rapoport and his staff had the forethought to explain everything and to provide for comfort. There was no pain or swelling, and the aftercare was easy."
"I had gum graft surgery and received superior service which made a hard procedure a positive experience restoring my teeth and dental health. Thanks also for the compassion you showed during my father's illness and being flexible with my challenging schedule. Your support, exceptional professionalism and kindness made a difference that was noticed!"
"In the past year, my regular dentist referred to Pacific Northwest Periodontics for a tooth implant. Dr Darrin Rapoport was excellent - all work was performed with the utmost professionalism, with minimal discomfort. Dr Rapoport answered all questions completely and to my satisfaction, ensuring I was fully informed and comfortable with each step of my tooth implant process. The office team was very helpful and efficiently handled all communication and answered all billing and insurance questions. I would happily recommend Dr. Rapoport for any periodontics work."
"I always have a positive experience when I come into the office. Everybody is very nice and welcoming. Dr. Rapoport has been great with helping my make some very hard decisions.
Cherry is also very helpful with my insurance plan and helping me with any further financial assistance that I might need. I have been coming to this office now for 3 years, and I wouldn't ever go anywhere else! I recommend this office to anybody out there who is in need of any type of periodontal work."
"Pacific NW Periodontics are wonderful... From the friendly staff, remodeled waiting area to the best perio guy around, Dr. Rapoport!"
"I adore Dr. Schuler and I love Valerie."
See you in December."
"My wife came here from China with major periodontal disease, substandard bridgework, and open infections in her gums. Doctor Rapoport and his team removed her lower teeth, installed the “All on Four,” and performed two sinus lift bone transplants all in one sitting. I was very impressed by the entire team – they care, and they know what they are doing. This type of dental work is not pleasant under the best of circumstances, but I would recommend Pacific Northwest to anyone needing implants."
Jerry and Yuhua, Cashmere WA
“The staff was very helpful and made me feel really comfortable. They were very prompt and answered all my questions. I couldn't believe how well the procedure went. I felt great and was really impressed that Dr. Rapoport called me later that evening to follow up. It was really nice.”
Thanks, Tami A.
“Just wanted to take a minute to thank you and your staff for your super professionalism. And for truly caring about your patients and the focus on getting everything done to perfection. Doing Pre-follow up Gingivalplasty Grafting is a nice touch. It truly makes one feel that you are doing this for the long term. I wanted to point out Leanna and Adel in particular for taking great care of me during the procedure, as well as the post-op visit. Keep up the great work.”
"My experience with Pacific Northwest Periodontics has been excellent. Fearing dentists in general, it was difficult making the appointment. The professional atmosphere, well trained staff and very skilled periodontists all combine to make it a pleasurable experience. I would highly recommend this office."
"I’m extremely happy with my implants. There’s no discomfort, and they’re rock solid. Dr. Schmidt’s dentures fit near perfect. Thanks!"
Donald C., Ketchikan AK
"I was treated excellent during all my office visits. I had one loose tooth for a very long time, and i decided to fill up this gap with an implant. The Doctor explains the procedure very well, and i know what to expect. He and his staff answered all my question professionally. I would recommend anyone needing this same procedure."
“I was a smoker for 10 years. Regular tobacco use combine with the braces I wore as a teen caused bone loss and short roots. A few years ago my first molar went bad. I had a terrible tooth ache and Dr. Schuler was able to extract the tooth for me. 3 months later he placed the implant without having to perform a sinus lift! Amen.
This year my lower left tooth developed a periodontal abscess due to bone loss. Dr. Rapoport was able to extract the tooth and place an immediate implant the same day! The healing was much better than the tooth ache, and I was able to return to work the next day.
I am looking forward to having the restoration placed on the LL next year. It has been 4 weeks and I hardly remember it happened.”
Val M., Auburn, WA
“From reception, scheduling, insurance and even the surgical staff made me feel welcome and at ease. Dr. Rapoport always takes the time to explain all of my options and answer all of my questions. If you need an implant - go to PNWP!”
Lawson, Covington WA
“I have been a patient with your office and its previous doctors for 27 years. I think Dr. Rapoport is an excellent technician and has given me excellent care.”
“Throughout the course of treatment the whole staff was friendly and professional. They were responsive and always ready to answer my questions. Dr. Schuler handled my procedure and did a great job explaining what it entailed and addressed all of the concerns I had. My treatments have gone smoothly with minimal discomfort and good results. It's easy to see why this office has a high level of success.”
“I am very pleased with the service I received at your office. I was referred by my regular dentist and was very happy with Dr. Schuler's work and team of assistants. They are very professional, friendly and helpful.”
Kim B. Auburn WA
“Dr. Schuler and his staff performed my first implant procedure about a year ago. It was very successful. During my first visit I explained that I feel very uneasy in the dentist chair. They were very sensitive to my needs. I returned a couple of months ago for a second implant, and everything is going well. Dr. Schuler, his dental assistants and office staff have all treated me very well. I am a very satisfied customer, and I highly recommend Pacific Northwest Periodontics.”
“Our son needed a gum graft. We were very concerned about the amount of pain he would experience. The procedure went well; he healed very quickly and had very little pain. Dr. Schuler is an excellent periodontist that we highly recommend.”
"I had a lower-right gum graft a year ago, and 6 months later my regular dentist couldn't tell there had ever been an operation ... just looked like the healthy gums I was born with!
It went so well that I had the lower left done 2 weeks ago: minimal swelling, NO bruising, and I'm eating regular food as of a week ago. The rest of my gums look good, but if Dr. R recommends ANY more work be done, sign me up!"
"He was interviewed recently on TV for general information about periodontal care. He has a positive reputation, and I was recommended by my general dentist. He is professional, friendly, and makes you feel confident. At 7 at night, he will call you to see how you're doing after the surgery and I even heard his kids in the background. My dental care didn't cover the cost, it was high, but, it was high quality and the best as well."
"My family dentist referred me to him. He's an outstanding specialist. He's considered one of the best in the region. I'll give 5 stars to him and his office. I would never hesitate to recommend him to anybody. There's no wait time. The billing and administration is excellent. I would go back to him if need be."
He is very professional and very thorough. He is a perfectionist and your care is very important to him.
"Dr. Rapoport is excellent, always taking the time to explain the procedure and listen to my concerns. He also called me at home personally after the surgery to see how I was doing. I really appreciate that."
"Dr Rapoport has performed skin graft surgery on my son, me, and a tooth implant for me. He and all his staff are highly professional, covering all needs as they arise if not before. They researched the financial details including insurance coverage amounts in advance so there were no surprises. Now I live on the road full-time with my hubby for his work and as needed, see Dr D A Rapoport when I return to the Seattle area once each year. You can't go wrong with Dr D A Rapoport and his staff!"
