Just moved to Lakewood Ranch last month. I know LWR has many doctors of all sorts but can anyone recommend names for a good dentist and a good general practice physician? Thanks in advance

My husband went to a dentist in LWR this week for a second opinion and was very satisfied with her: Allison O'Brien (941-373-3904). She was thorough and straight-up unlike the dentist he went to a week earlier who was very aggressive in recommending all kinds of procedures.

It's only been three weeks since we moved here so we are looking for a primary care physician, also. Hoping to get some recommendations for the LWR area or north of there in east Manatee.

Dr Wayne Faulkner in LWR is very good. He is conservative and reasonably priced.. He is located off University Pkway

Watch out for overly aggressive dentists in town - and get second opinions - I hate to say it but some of these "dentists" don't have the same standards in patient care as MD's - many of their treatment plans are far too "aggressive" (read EXPENSIVE) from kids braces to pushing "implants" instead of saving teeth !

Many of these "dentists" have multiple locations in SW FL and essentially are running "dental mills" and thus making huge profits because they know you don't know which treatment plan makes them the most money !

Be careful

I could NOT AGREE more with this statement!! We have been here 6 years and have been to so many different dentists. They were all so aggressive, wouldn't take no for an answer and weren't pocketbook friendly. My sister who is also local, has had the same problem with her family. A few of them wouldn't even accept recent X-rays from other practices, I'm talking like just a month ago. They pushed her into doing more with "their" equipment or something ridiculous.

She went to Dr Faulkner in LWR and loved him. She felt very comfortable with him, and his prices were right. I wonder if the dentists are just hurting..

I would not go to Wayne Faulkner DDS, in Bradenton. His office staff is terrible and not ethic.
