Dr. Raoufinia is nothing more than an insurance schemer. I went to have a filling fixed and he said I need a root canal, wisdom teeth removal and braces. Thinking he was up for a paycheck I declined to start anything during this visit. I was about to leave the country for a month on a business trip and he insisted that he at least puts a temporary filling. He did some drilling and put the temporary filling. I have an excellent insurance policy and everything should be covered ( I double-checked with my insurance). To my big surprise upon my return from the trip I had a bill waiting for me for $150 - the bill didn't state anything, only that I owe $150. There was no information what services were rendered, what each one cost, etc. When I called the office they said that in the meantime my insurance paid them $50 and I now owe them $100. I took the matter in my hands and demanded detailed bill for all monetary transfers from my insurance, plus all services rendered. He billed my insurance company for $675 and then billed me $150 (they never send me a note that company paid $50 and I owed them $100). This left me with the feeling that Raoufinia is nothing more than an insurance schemer.
I refused to pay and notified my insurance company with affidavit for my experience with this office. I also sent a letter of attorney. The office then sent me a note that I owe them nothing.
Here is the real kicker - I went to a different dentist's office ( a Harvard grad with excellent credentials ). She said that the work of Raoufinia was done deliberately to continue with a root canal. My new dentist did a fantastic job and put a new filling, which feels great and doesn't cause any problems. She asked me to stop by twice so she can check if there are problems. There are none. She charged the insurance company $100 for her work and charged me nothing. My two additional visits were free of charge.
My advice: beware when Raoufinia suggests what you need done. Also, make sure you check your bill and check what your insurance paid.
