I was a recent patient of this dentist and chose him because I needed a tooth extraction immediately due to the pain. He was available and his business is also walk-in. In the initial procedure he charged a pretty high fee, more than $450, claiming it was discounted ""especially for me"".\r
Well, since the extraction I have had severe pain in my gum that radiates to my ears and has gotten increasingly worse. Having waited after two cycles of antibiotics (one given to me by a regular doctor who I saw because I don't have dental insurance but I do have medical) I made an appointment for a couple of days later even though I had horrible pain because they said they couldn't get me in before that. \r
So, there was a snow storm last night. I called his office to make sure he was open but no one answered. Eventually I just drove there (over 40 minutes because of bad roads). Arriving the building had a closed sign. He sticks his head out from the top floor of the building where his office is and asks ""what's up?"" I tell him of my severe pain in my ears. He tells me I should go see an ear doctor. I also have a tooth close to the extraction sight with a root canal. When I say the pain is also in my gum and neck he says it must be the other tooth and to get it taken care of and closes the window on me.\r
1- I had a scheduled appointment which he did not honor. He did not have the common courtesy to call me to tell me the appointment was canceled.\r
2- He has made no attempt to help me even though a follow up for oral surgery is a general practice even if the patient is not having complications.\r
Needless to say I went home and cried. I can barely stand the pain and now I'm going to have to pay someone else who isn't familiar with my case, who knows how much, because the agony is so unbearable. \r
Do Not Choose Him!
Cons: refuses to help a patient in severe agony
