Dr. Dooley has been my dentist since before we both had grey hair - more than 15 years. I see him when I am not in Hawaii now - but I was quite disturbed at one or two of the comments I saw in this review area as not being indicative of the professional I know and trust. A few on this site have given him a odd review as being somehow not professional or serious enough. He has a great sense of humor and an offbeat chair-side manor - but when it comes to his work and your care - he is dead serious. I suspect that stuffy people just don't 'get' him at all. He is a great and talented dentist and I have trusted him with my dental health and smile with excellent results. If you want a dentist who will make you feel like a random 'patient' and 'sterile' and 'cold' - then go find a stuffy, impersonal, and conceited dentist who will tell you what he wants you to do with your smile and dental health (there are some of those around Woodstock). Dooley is your professional 'partner' when it comes to your teeth and his work has been nothing but perfection since I have been going there. Personalities don't always match up, but I have NEVER felt that his somewhat quirky personality has ever compromised his professionalism and services as he has provided the utmost care for me and my dental health.

The staff at Dr. Dooley's office are extremely sweet and caring, but it stops when you get to the dentist. He is conceited or something. He made all kinds of rude remarks to me while I was there and made me feel like I was an idiot. He also proceeded to yell at his assistant when she wrote something wrong in the computer. Right in front of me - the patient! He should have waited until I was out of the room before he jumped all over her for doing something wrong. I felt really awkward. The staff seem to act like he is supposed to be funny, or sarcastic or something - but I don't think it's appropriate behavior for a dentist. Just my opinion. I will not be returning to this office.

I have been a patient of Dr. Dooley's for almost four years. When we first moved to Woodstock I did not have a dentist. Dr. Dooley's office sent me an invitation in the mail to visit their office. After going in for a routine cleaning I decided that I wanted him to be my dentist and have been very satisfied since.

I've been going to Dr. Dooley for over 15 years and I would never think of going to another dentist. They have the latest and greatest technology and they are good and caring people. Dooley isn't your guy if you don't like a easy going friendly approach to doctors.

This guy made me feel very uncomfortable with some of the remarks being bantered about in the dental office. Not appropriate at all for customers! The remarks were sexual in nature. Ran to a new dentist ASAP!

I've been going to Dr. Dooley for almost two years and love him - he's very thorough, has a great sense of humor, and makes the dentist visit actually enjoyable. His staff is incredibly nice and always prompt too!

I've used Dr. Dooley over the past couple of years and have been very pleased with his service and attention to detail. His office and support staff are very nice. I like the relaxed and friendly atmosphere. I would highly recommend them!

Dr. Dooley has been my family's Dentist for 16 years now. We actually tried another Doctor (a little closer to home) but after comparing the care and relationship we immediately went back to Dr. Dooley. Over the years we have had the need for referals for dental surgery, orthodontists, etc... and Dr. Dooley has always refered us to the proper people.
