Health Care reviews in Sitka
based on the convenient location near the Yale campus. I've never had any
serious dental problems, but a number of silver fillings in my back teeth since
I was a kid. At my first visit to Dr. /> fillings needed replacement, and of course I had it done. This
sensitivity in that tooth that persisted for several months, which I don't
think is the fault of Dr.
attributable to the dentist yet. The next time I went in for my regular
cleaning, I was told that another filling had a gap ("margin") and
needed to be replaced. This time, I didn't want to simply agree, given the
discomfort of the previous year, and also my skepticism that two 30-year-old
fillings would suddenly go bad within one year of one another. So, I got a
second opinion from an independent dentist, who said that the filling in
question was fine. Now, there's no way to tell whether Dr.
powers to detect failing fillings or whether this is a scam to get insurance
money, but I'm certainly not going to this office again.
The reason why I no longer go to Dr. told a lot of stories. However, on my last visit, he made a lot of political comments (it was President's Day) that eventually turned a little racial. I don't go to the dentist for a political conversation so I will go elsewhere.
The first and subsequent appointments with Dr. are amazing. He is an extremely caring and personable dentist, who works hard to make his patients happy. His knowledge base is outstanding and his work is perfection. He removed poorly done bonding that another dentist had put on a front tooth. The result was total perfection, which I never thought could happen.
Overall, my experience with all of the staff and Dr.
Getting this work involved multiple visits, which I understood. However, his practice refuses to make more than one or two appointments at a time for a patient. So after one step had finished, I had to make a brand-new appointment. There was always a delay involved because he keeps himself busy in what I am sure must be a very lucrative practice. Instead of coming back to see him in four weeks, I couldn't get an appointment until eight weeks from the last. This entire course of treatment ended up taking about five months when it should have taken more like three, in my opinion. If a process is going to take five visits, then five appointments should be scheduled at the outset. To me, that's a no-brainer.
When I asked him about this, he claimed that he was not aware of his office's scheduling practice. I told him that I found that hard to believe, given that it is his practice. To my surprise, he became defensive and asked me if I was accusing him of being a liar!
I also told two people that I wanted the crown to be gold rather than porcelain. Remarkably, a porcelain crown was ordered. A gold crown had to be reordered which caused additional delay with the work.
Aside from these issues, there was another problem. In my opinion, he does not pay as much attention to detail when he works on teeth as I think he should. This may be because he keeps himself so busy.
I felt like his office inundated me with phone calls and text message reminders of appointments. Some people might appreciate that, but I felt like I was being harassed by a marketing machine. He continues to try to get more and more patients, but he is too busy to see them in a timely fashion.
friendly guy, but that does not make up for all of these other problems.
If I have any suggestion to help frightened patients like myself it would be to not talk about things you plan on doing quietly behind me. What you are discussing about instruments and ways to do things with each other are frightening to me. I know you need to discuss these things but a quick reassurance and explanation to me would be helpful. This is not a complaint because I know you do your best to try to make me feel comfortable but I am such a ,"chicken", that I have trouble relaxing trying to hear what is next. Thank you for understanding my fears and always striving to make the dental experiences at your office the best possible. ”
