I have been fillings, cleanings, root canals and crowns for my teeth by Dr. Luk. I have paid more than $5000 so far for the past 2 some years. The problem is, he did the job, wasn't that clean, kept making me come back and charged me every time. I am definitely No recommend this dentist, because he always try to take the advantage of your wallet.
For example: my tooth felt hurt last week, that tooth has been root canal and crown about 2 some years ago. He told me need to re-root canal one more time and pay one more time. Also he kept telling me that my case was pretty rarely, only like 1% of the people need to re-root canal. He just tried to get off all his responsibilities.
Then I made an appointment for 2 hrs re-root canal treatment last week. he also doesn't really know how to manage the time and schedule...like for that the 2 hrs re-root canal appointment, most of the time I was waiting for him to come. When he came, he used around 30 min to do the re-root canal, and said it was hard job to do it. It needs to re-schedule the 2 more hrs appointment at another day. I remember that the front desk told me normally it takes 2 hours should be good enough for one root canal. I think the main reason, it was 6pm, time to get off there... he didn't stand my side to think about it, my tooth only finished 30 to 40 % the job. He told me to come back to finish the rest of job next week. Now I am feeling more pain compare to before I didn't do the re-root canal. I have to take the pain relief pills before go to the bed... and I have to take one more day off for the re-schedule. Also I have to have some more injections again; I believe nobody likes to take those shots...
When I paid the bill, the front desk (his brother, Tim), he saw I got some cash and said that was the cash deal, I could not pay by any kind the cards. If I want to pay by card, the price going to lot higher. The point is he didn't tell me that I could not by cards before... the IRS should deal with him soon. Also why I needed to pay all amount first, since the job is not done
