One of the best dentists in the area! Great people to work with!
Dr.Madison is fantastic. His staff members are great as well. I highly recommend this practice after having tried several local dental offices in Reston area.
Friendly staff - very knowledgeable and helpful!
I've been going to Dr. Madison's practice for over 8 years now. Every time, the staff are friendly. They staff almost never change. And that's a good thing. The Dr. is always honest and gives me real data about my dental state. The work is quite literally the best I have ever had.
ROOT CANAL GONE BAD! It took 5 hours of a root canal (between 2 sessions), two weeks of excruciating pain and trips to Dr. Banks, 5 trips to the pharmacy (for more pain meds), a trip to the emergency room, next day surgery (with an oral surgeon), and over $4,000 just to...PULL MY TOOTH. Throughout this whole escapade, the only answer from Dr. Banks seemed to be "time" and "more pain medication". Right from the start something wasn't right as the initial root canal visit was 2.5 hours, and I had to reschedule another visit because he couldn't "break through the roots". Trip after trip of complaining of severe pain, there were no conclusions ever drawn. That is until I went to the ER and an oral surgeon to find out that their was an infection and absese within the tooth. After having to pull the tooth, i was required to have a tube in my neck to drain out all of the fluids (almost a week). Another downfall is the fact that there are now two offices in which he splits time at, one in Herndon and the other in Tyson's corner. So if you're in need of day to day assistance, be prepared to wait, or drive to one or the other. Needless to say, I will not be visiting Dr. Banks office ever again.
I have been going to Dr Madison for over 7 years now. Each time, it has been a pleasure. The staff have all been there for a while, and they remember you. It is a great dental experience. Relaxed. As a bonus point, the magazines are all up to date. :-)
I have been a patient for about 15 years. I have come to trust Dr. Banks' recommendations completely, something I seldom do with medical professionals. I also have great respect for his knowledge and skill. He keeps aggressively up-to-date on dental technological advancements, as well as refines his skill in difficult specialties such as prosthodontics. Why pay a premium for crowns at a specialist when Dr. Banks is just as good! His practice is extremely well run as a business, he has great staff who stay with him for the long term.
