Patient Review By Kate S

I need to begin this review with a huge THANK YOU to all involved in my care today at Midwest Endodontic Specialists, Ltd. I have so many positive things to say about my experience from the initial phone call to be seen (as my tooth was throbbing) to the procedure itself. The willingness to help and professionalism of the doctors and staff was exceptional! Being able to complete the required paperwork online prior to the appointment was an added bonus. Additionally, as mentioned in other reviews, the attention to detail for the patient's comfort and care was outstanding! As this was my first experience at an Endodontist, I did not know what to expect but Dr. Benjamin and staff calmly explained to me what they were doing as they progressed through the procedure. I am amazed that it was so painless. Thanks again for taking away my pain and making my day! If you are ever in need of a root canal, do not hesitate to call Midwest Endodontic Specialist, Ltd.

I highly recommend this facility to those of you like myself suffer in pain because of your high anxiety. They take there time make sure you are comfortable by adding things such as aroma therapy,silencing headphones as well as cold wash cloths . So please don't suffer if your teeth have issues and your scared they will take very good care of you, and I can attest to that, as being a very high anxiety and nervous person.

Patient Review By Kelli

I was so nervous going into the office for my root canal. The staff greeted me as soon as I came in and were very professional and helpful during the entire visit. Dr. Fabian Hosein was so nice and explained every detail. He and his assistant were awesome! I cannot say enough of how pleasant the entire procedure went. Thank you for taking such good care of me and helping me to feel at ease.

Patient Review By Scott C

Obviously getting root canal is not on the top of the list for things to get done. The entire office was friendly and very informative. No pain at all during the procedure. The shot was quick with no pain. The assistant ( sorry I cannot remember her name) was excellent. That night had small discomfort that was easily controlled with advil. The next day no discomfort at all. Anyone who needs a root canal should be very comfortable with this staff and painless procedure.

Patient Review By Charlie G

I had always heard horror stories about root canals so I was very pleased that it was a relatively quick and totally painless procedure. I had a second procedure today and while I don’t want to make a habit of them it was over in less than an hour and I have no pain after the numbness was gone. Thank you Dr. Fabian and staff!!

Patient Review By Stephanie B

I had a wonderful experience here!! I was afraid to have treatment done so I put up with a lot of pain for way too long. Dr Fabian was great and the procedure went smoothly. I left the office wondering why I waited to have this done. Great experience!

Patient Review By Julia K

This was my first time for a root canal.I was so impressed by their friendliness and professionalism. Dr. Benjamin put me at ease by explaining exactly what he was doing . I was a dental assistant back in the 70's and am blown away with how far dentistry has come. Thank you so much for this pain for experience!

Patient Review By William G

Though I had never had one, I've always used "root canal" as a gauge of how bad something would be. For instance, "I'd rather have a root canal than go to this meeting". However, after this experience I might need to come up with another dreaded phrase. The root canal I had at Midwest Endodontics (at the Galesburg location) was TOTALLY PAINLESS. Except for a very small amount of pain for the numbing shot, I felt no pain whatsoever. For me, having a cavity filled has typically been worse than this procedure. I was in and out in an hour, watched Netflix on a monitor on the ceiling during the procedure, and besides being numb for the next 8 hours, I have had no discomfort after the procedure. My only complaint is that I only got through half of the second episode of "The Office" before they were done. I'll have to watch the other half on Netflix I suppose!

Patient Review By Nic M

Like so many others have said, it’s really the anticipation that kills for a root canal. My mom had one done earlier this year and was in intense pain the entire time, her endodontist wasn’t careful and didn’t do a great job so I was very nervous getting this one done, as it would be my first. Dr. Fabian did a fantastic job! The only pain was from the injection for the numbing agents, and those barely hurt. The whole root canal took maybe 15-20 minutes and I didn’t feel a single thing during or after. Even now, 12 hours after the procedure my tooth has no pain or sensitivity at all. I will absolutely be returning to Dr. Fabian if I need any more work done, thank you to all the staff that made such a great experience for me! The receptionist, the doctor, the assistant, they were all terrific and very focused on making the procedure as smooth and easy as possible. 5/5 definitely recommend coming here

Patient Review By Kim W

I noticed the pleasant atmosphere as soon as I walked in. The ladies in the front were fast and friendly. The nurse was friendly and explained what she was doing which put me at ease. Dr B was terrific. Explained everything as he went and gave an accurate time frame. An obvious professional. Thanks to all.

Just had my second root canal over past 3 years. Dr. Fabian does a great job. No discomfort during or after the procedure. The anticipation is far worse than the actual procedure.

Patient Review By Roberta B

It will be hard for most people to understand that having a root canal done by Dr. Fabian was a pleasant experience. He was most considerate of my comfort at all times, he explained what he was doing and everything he had done after the procedure. There was no pain, absolutely none. This was not my first root canal so knew what to expect. His assistant and office staff were fantastic. The young woman at the front desk so pleasant, my prescription was called in before leaving and ready for pickup on my way home. Thank you to all of you for your thoughtfulness, kindness and your expertise.

Patient Review By William H

Dr. Benjamin was amazing! I was very nervous about having the root canal done. Dr. Benjamin assured me that there would be absolutely no pain. He applied a liberal amount of numbing gel and then did the injections - literally no pain at all. During the procedure, I did not feel any pain and his assistant was very comforting in making sure I was comfortable. This procedure is NOT like what other people told me - truthfully, I experience more pain and discomfort when I get my teeth clean every six months. I would definitely recommend Dr. Benjamin and his staff.
