We were sent by referral to this man for a wisdom tooth extraction. We arrived on time for the appointment and was told to fill out paper work which we did. about ten pages into paperwork there was a paper that needed to be signed saying that payment would be made at time of service, the amount to be paid was written at the bottom of the page it was $1511.00. I took this paper to the receptionist and was told that yes that amount had to be paid for that very morning. I asked why we had not been told that we had to pay this beforehand , the receptionist said they tried to call the day before and left a message on my answering machine. At that time I was driving to the city where the appt. was. I contacted my husband to see what we could do , he suggested asking to date a check for that Friday. The receptionist said she would have to ask the doctor and that we had to wait because he was in surgery. The receptionist then told us the doctor did not want to take our check and that he wanted us to reschedule our appt. because it had been too long from our appt. time. We had to rent a room, take off of work not just for that day but for a few days because of recovery time, we paid for meals and gas while getting there and back but none of this concerned him. I would never recommend him to anyone.
