Very dissatisfied with the service. Doctor would not call me back. Staff is very unfriendly. It is a shame because healthcare is a service where kindness goes a long way. Our experience was truly horrible. I regret not having done better research upfront.
They ignored my questions and my appointment seemed rushed. Their staff was friendly enough, but they didn't go out of their way to help me. They didn't help me as much as I was hoping and didn't answer all my questions.
This Dr has a selling run on her answering machine. But she is the most RUDE Dr. I have ever come across. She doesnt like to be challenged in her work. SHe is OLD school and is not up to date on all the newest in ORTHO. Even though she claims she is a teacher or and on staff she is clueless in bedside manner. IF you ask questions you will see her make faces at her staff who really are the only thing going for her except the front desk who rarely smiles. The Dr acts like you are a problem to her rather then her bread and butter.
I checked with three others around all were more progressive and cheaper in time our children's braces would be on and cheaper. I have heard many complaints from our friends who all go to the same school and didn't care for her attitude.
Do yourself a favor and check out others she will not like the questions you ask and my teens were not going to ask them so I was going to and she put me off on time to many that my husband refused to go to her. I agree as do both my kids.
