I remember the days when medical professionals were mostly WW2 vets who went to university and medical school on the GI Bill and graduated debt free and lived by the Hippocratic Oath. Patients were treated and billed with respect according to their ability to pay. Today the Millennials are coming out of medical school in debt for hundreds of thousands of dollars and care about nothing but profit. They've never heard of the Hippocratic Oath. Third party financial administration companies run most hospitals and clinics these days and doctors just do what they're told by accountants and pharmaceutical sales people. I personally have one of the best dental plans available in the US and still dentists will try to oversell me right from the very first meeting and the assistants are instructed to oversell patients also. It is a corrupt industry. I am not very happy about going here with a very minor problem and being told very matter of fact that they can't help me until I have my teeth cleaned to the tune of $700.00 upfront. My insurance covers 90% if not in PPO and 100% if in PPO. No matter what type of cleaning it is. But nowadays they want you, the person paying a high premium for insurance to spit out the money upfront. Then they bill the insurance and then reimburse you after they have sat on your money and find out the insurance covers 90%. This place is a joke, they took 2 xrays to the tune of $100.00 dollars which I'm pretty sure they will be reimbursing me for after my insurance pays them for it. Then this young Dr. Austin comes in pokes and scraps my very very sensitive teeth and makes a snide comment about how I have said it hurts in 5 different places. Well yeah, that is why I came in because my teeth are super sensitive to hot and cold and the sensitivity moves around and it just started in the last 2 weeks, he never even let me get out that I had recently finished taking Prednisone. Then he proceeds with, you need your teeth cleaned and I can't help you until then. Not only do you need your teeth cleaned you need a deep scale and root cleaning. So yeah, basically bend over and take it up the butt and until you let us break it off in your butt, get the phuck out! The worst bedside manner I have ever seen and that is when I thought to myself, I will be going somewhere else. Actually I thought about going to the hygienist that is in my PPO to have my teeth cleaned and then go back to this guy and make him do his job but since his bedside manner was so terrible to begin with I won't even bother, just terrible. And apparently this Crown Dental won't even try to predetermine the portion that your insurance won't cover like most other places do, they just want you to pay the whole thing up front because they are not in my PPO, ridiculous! I'm pretty sure they won't be getting a dime of the 90% my insurance would have covered because I won't ever be back. The office staff is totally incompetent, they submitted to my insurance but gave their prior address before they moved so when my insurance paid, the check went to where ever?? The waiting room time is ridiculous. I went to another place after being treated like crap at Crown Dental. It was just a little ol brick building and you could tell their equipment wasn't all new and fancy but i didn't care because I walked out of there feeling like that Dr. really cared about my problem. The hygienist spent at least 40 minutes talking with me and gave me 3 boxes of product to help my issue and then the Dr. came in and spent at least 30 minutes talking to me and listening to my issue. They coated my teeth with something and they did everything possible to help me, I felt like a real person and not just a dollar sign, they even took 4 wing-bite xrays that they didn't charge me for. The Dr. said my teeth were not that bad and that he didn't think I needed a deep root/scale cleaning at all and that they could do it all at once. So basically this Crown Dental Center was just trying to up sell me something I didn't need so they could line their pockets. I am so upset at this, that I decided to write this review and spread the word. Even though this other place I went to wasn't all brand new and shiny with brand new equipment, their caring, integrity, professionalism and personal attention I received more than made up for it. When I left I asked the receptionist what I owed and she said we will bill your insurance and then send you a bill if you owe anything. Just as it should be. So if you'd like to be treated like a dollar sign and over sold for treatment you don't need so you can pay for the fresh out of school newbie, their new building/equipment and fancy leather chairs then this is the place for you! Oh and be prepared to wait past your scheduled appointment anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour and deal with incompetent office staff. Good Luck!
