David Studt, D.D.S.

Stannard & Studt & Wolf Dentistry

"Dr. Studt, along with Dr. Stannard and the entire staff, makes the entire family smile – and not only because they are a dental office. Dr. Studt and staff are truly a family and make each and every person that walks into the office feel like they are a part of that. You are always greeted by your name and asked how you are doing. They are always smiling and upbeat. Most kids and adults do not like going to the dentist, but my kids actually want to visit the dentist office. We (were) very fortunate to find such a great office with people that enjoy what they do. My boys asked me to write the following: 'Dr. Studt is funny and has good jokes and Lady D gives good hugs. We like them all – and the cool toothbrushes that they give us. '" – Debra, Commerce

Christopher Remishofsky, M.D.

Georgetown Dermatologists, PC
39242 Dequindre Road, Suite 105, Sterling Heights
"Dr. Christopher, as my two daughters call him, is both professional and friendly. My twin daughters are 3 years old, and sometimes, doctors can be scary for them. But with Dr. Christopher, they always enjoy going to his office. So much so that recently, they had another doctor appointment scheduled and my one daughter asked if we could go see Dr. Christopher, instead. We never feel rushed during our appointments, and he always talks directly to my girls and spends time getting to know them – while still providing the best quality care and answering all of my questions. We feel very fortunate to have Dr. Christopher looking after our daughters' needs." – Wendy, Sterling Heights

Wendy Sadoff, M.D.

Sadoff Dermatology
