Horrible experience

He messed up one of my molars by placing a filling. I went back at least 3 more times for him to correct the situation. He made it seem like it was my fault or as if I was making all my pain up in my head. I've never had to deal with something so horrible in my life. I now have an appointment with another dentist hopefully he could fix what this Dr. Screwed up. They won't even give me my crown that was molded for me. I don't feel comfortable with him touching me again. I'm in so much pain, mind you I was in no pain when I went in.
