  • I have been a patient of Dr. Avanesian's for a year. I found him on Yelp because he has successfully treated people with small mouths and who gag real easy. He makes you feel very comfortable especially if you have any fears of the dentist. He will not do any dental work unless needed.

  • She has been my dentist for about 20 years. She is very pain free. I have never experienced a lot of discomfort she is very gentle. She remembers me when I go in. She is really good. I like that staff and office they are all very good. She is good at making it a pleasant experience.

  • I was under sedation while I was having my tooth extracted. I spent $650 and I was wide awake. My interaction with that stunk. He is a nice man, but his real cheek with the anesthesia. The first time I went to him the first time and he pulled 7 teeth. I told him that I was awake and he said that I wasn?t. I told him that I felt him put the pliers on my tooth and pull out my tooth from the socket. I think I have a damaged sinus cavity. I would tell other members to look around and I would not recommend him. He is expensive and does not deliver what he says he is going to. He is always on some exotic vacations. He has great girls that work for him. I paid by cash, so I don?t know about the billing and administration.

  • My experience with Dr. Margossian was very good. I have no complaints about him or his work. He is a bit brusque but that came across to me as being professional rather than being uncaring. He kindly reassured me when I was anxious about the results. He was fast and efficient. It's his office staff that I had a problem with. On the day of the consult, the receptionist, Patty, asked me about insurance coverage. I told her I had Blue Cross Blue Shield and that Dr. Margossian was a preferred provider. She was concerned about the insurance. I told her I was fairly confidant that BCBS had given me the correct information. She said she had been doing her job for a long time and more often that not, people think they are covered but then find out too late that they are not. She really worried over it. She said insurance companies don?t know what they are saying half the time and they mislead the customer. After I went home, I called BCBS again to verify the information. They again said even though Dr. Margossian was a "Dentist", I was covered for oral surgery as long as the claim was submitted as a Medical Procedure. I called Patty in Dr. Margossian?s office to tell her what BCBS had said. She wouldn?t believe me. She said I wasn?t covered for dental so I didn?t have insurance. I told her she was correct but that my insurance company viewed a biopsy as a medically necessary procedure, therefore I was covered. She just had to make sure the claim was submitted for medical and not dental. She still worried so I called BCBS back and asked them if they would call her and help her understand. They called her and spoke to her. I called BCBS to see what happened and they said she was really confused, but I could trust the info BCBS gave me. Went in for the biopsy. Patty asked me pay $300 which was the equivalent to my deductible which I put on my VISA card. I asked why I had to pay before the surgery and they said that?s just the way it was. I asked what would happen if they owed me money at the end. They said they would pay me the difference. The only receipt they gave me for the payment was a small cash register-like printout. Approximately 2 months later, I wondered why I hadn?t gotten an Explanation Of Benefits from BCBS yet for Margossian. Other EOBs were coming through much faster. I called Blue Cross and they told me they hadn?t received a claim. I called Dr. Margossian?s office and they said they submitted it but it must have gotten lost. They said they would resubmit it. Approximately 2 weeks later, I called Blue Cross to see if they had gotten the claim from Dr. Margossian. They had received it on April 27, 2010 and were processing it. The claim was processed by Blue Cross on June 1, 2010 and paid on June 3, 2010. I received the EOB some time after that. According to the EOB, Dr. Margossian?s office owed me a refund because I had overpaid. I waited for a billing statement from Dr. Margossian?s office. It didn?t come. Some time during the first week of July I called Dr. Margossian?s office to see when I would be receiving a statement. I had to call repeatedly because the person wouldn?t call me back. I finally spoke to someone, and said I had received the EOB and was wondering when I would be receiving a statement. The woman told me that I wouldn?t be receiving a statement because they were considering the account closed. I repeated that I wanted a statement showing the charges and the insurance payment and the balance. She finally agreed to send me a billing. A week later, I called Dr. Margossian?s office again. This time I asked if they had a billing or accounting office. I was asked by the woman I was speaking to if she could help me. I asked if they could please transfer me to a billing or accounting clerk. She told me she was trying to help me. I asked if they didn?t have a billing clerk. The woman told me she could help me. I told her I was told I would receive a billing statement and I hadn?t received it yet. She told me I hadn?t received it because Dr. Margossian had been out of town for 3 weeks and he needed to sign off on all billings. I complained that someone should have told me that the last time I called. She apologized and said she would make sure it went out. About a week later, I called Margossian?s office again and asked for a statement. I spoke to Patty. She apologized again and said she would send it out either that day or Monday, July 19th. Five days later, I still had not received a billing. I stopped in to Dr. Margossian?s office and spoke to Patty. She showed me my file and said it was ready to go to the right person but she was out just then. The next day Patty from Dr. Margossian?s office called me to tell me that BCBS had processed the claim in error. She said that Dr. Margossian was not a preferred provider and she had spoken to BCBS about that. I asked how it was possible that they were listed with BCBS as a PP, but she was saying they were not. She said something about having two provider numbers and the wrong number had been used. The other number which should have been used was not a PP number. She told me she had been referred to Blue Cross Provider Relations. I called BCBS and spoke to Ashley. She agreed that Dr. Margossian was a PP and yes they did have two numbers but BCBS didn?t ordinarily process a claim under the "out of network" number. She said if Margossian didn?t think they were a PP, they should have said something before now. I said it seemed very suspicious that their PP status came into question only AFTER I asked for a billing because it looked like they owed me a refund. I asked how it was possible that they could juggle provider numbers according to their whim. I asked if they did that to get out of paying me? She said it looked very weird. I wondered if they do that all the time. I suggested that Margossian be investigated for bait and switch tactics. Ashley said she would document everything including my comments and get back to me early next week. A week later I called Blue Cross, spoke to Ashley, she hadn?t heard back from the analyst yet. Four days later, Ashley called me. She said that Margossian was truly out of network and just hasn?t completed the paperwork with BCBS yet telling them that. But they had agreed to pay me what they owe me. No date for payment because the person who does that was out of town. She said to call her in a week if I didn?t get a check and she would decide what to do. Almost 2 weeks later (August 18) I still had not received a check from Margossian. I went to their office and finally they wrote me a check for the balance due to me. I still have NEVER received any kind of billing or statement showing Margossian's fees, the insurance payments, my payment and the balance. I have never ever encountered such sloppy accounting, intentional delays, confusion and misinformation. It makes me wonder if Dr. Margossian IS a good dentist or if he's a fraud. I truly believe that they are running some kind of scam. Why were they originally so willing to close the account without any kind of final paperwork to me? Did they know there was a discrepancy and they wanted me to stop asking questions? Why did they keep using the excuse that someone was out of town to delay the payment? Why have they not updated their paperwork with BCBS? Why did they submit the claim as a Preferred Provider and then try to change? Why did they repeatedly not call me back? I had to go there in person twice to get any action. Why did they agree to finally pay me? Why did they give me a check instead of crediting my VISA account. Why did they NEVER give me any accounting of the services? Why was Patty so confused at the beginning? Was it because she already knew of the discrepancy and expected trouble? Why didn't she straighten out the PP discrepancy when BCBS called her explaining the PP status? Why did Margossian's office submit the claim as a PP?

  • My wife and I have been going to Dr. Valdez for over 15 years. His staff has been the same people the entire time. Everyone is always very nice and personable....they feel almost like family to us at this point, but at the same time are 100% professional in the way they work. The prices seem very reasonable, and when we had a problem with our insurance company years ago they were very helpful in working out a solution for us. They have always managed to squeeze us into their schedule when we've had an emergency, no matter how busy they are. I personally am not a huge fan of having dental work done, but Dr. Valdez is great at keeping the conversation flowing and keeping my mind off any minor discomfort I might feel. I gave a "B" rating for availability, only because I don't think they are open every day of the week....but I commend Dr. Valdez on making time to spend with his family and enjoy life as well as running a great dental practice. We would never think of going to any other dentist. I hope Dr. Valdez never retires!
