I took both my daughters to get their wisdom teeth out with Dr. Gocke, and I could not be happier. Dr. Gocke is kind and patient, his staff is lively and helpful. My daughter was cracking jokes with the nurse before going into surgery. The office is clean and welcoming. I highly recommend!

Dr. Gocke is an absolutely amazing surgeon. I came in for emergency surgery, and Dr. Gocke was brilliant, professional, and personable. Even though this was a complicated case, he took great care of me, so that I could make a full recovery. I highly recommend Dr. Gocke for anyone who needs oral, facial surgery.

The best operation I could've ever had. It was simple, seamless, and I felt pretty good after the operation. They even followed up with me the next day and sent me a card in the mail to wish me well. It was so nice, and if I ever have to get an extraction again, I will go to Dr. Gocke without a doubt.
