Wow what an evil, doomsday witch! Worst experience ever. I saw her several years ago and all this time I thought it was just me but I sent my 22 year old girlfriend to her and she left in tears!
I called to complain and guess who answered... You got it- the good doctor herself. Her response to my complaint was "Tell her not to come back!" I, acting like I could not tell it was her because I knew no employee would respond this way, calmly told her I was going to report her to Medicaid for patient abuse and she invited me to do so just prior to hanging up on me. So Dooms... that's exactly what I'm going to do.
Worst Dentist I've Ever Been To – To set the background: I am a 23-year old female college student & full-time employee who has been receiving dental care regularly and has never had any dental disease or problems (including cavities).
I went to Dr. Doom after my mom switched us to a new insurance and Dr. Doom was the only one that had an appointment open who would take my insurance. I went in for a routine cleaning. The staff was very unorganized upon my arrival. The waiting room was crowded and uncomfortable. Although I arrived 20 minutes prior to my appointment time, I waited over an hour to be seen. In that time, I saw several children go back with the dental hygienists only to be escorted back to the waiting room within minutes, crying. She refused to see them because they were scared and crying. (Just a hint: taking children away from their parents and treating them coldly WILL make them cry).
After being escorted back, I was put in a chair that was not separated very well from any of the other patients. The dental hygienist asked me to lean back and began working on the cleaning. Several times during the procedure I began to choke (not sure if it was the angle she had me at or the suction not being placed correctly, but I have NEVER had that happen before). I had to stop the hygienist because even after visibly having issues, she refused to acknowledge my discomfort. She began working again on my teeth after telling me "to stop so she could finish, " at which point the pain became so bad that I had to fight back tears. By the time the doctor came in to take a final look at my teeth, I had tears streaming down my face. The doctor was actually gentler than the hygienist, but her hands were still rough in my mouth.
After the whole procedure was done, I got in my car and cried. I have NEVER had such a painful experience at the dentist and finally realized why some people fear them. It's because of doctors and hygienists like those at Dr. Doom's office! I feel terrible for the kids that are forced to go there.
One word of advise: DON'T DO IT.
She didn't spell Doom day for me – I went to Dr Doom after being rejected by several dentist. I was in excruciating pain. However I had always been afraid to go to Dr Doom because of her name. But on my day of agony, she is the only dentist that would take me in right away. I didn't wait long. I must say the worst part of my experience was getting the numbing shot because I'm afraid of that big needle. But after I was given the shot by an assistant, she came a little later and relieved my agony. She was a little rough, but with the pain I was in, I didn't care. I commend her for taking me as a walk-in when no one else would help me. I say, God Bless You Dr Doom, and may your business prosper. And if you and your staff have mistreated others, I pray God bless you all to treat every one with dignity and respect.
HER NAME SAYS IT ALL – FIRST OF ALL, LET ME START BY SAYING, JUST BECAUSE MOST OF YOUR PATIENTS ARE MEDICAID RECIPIENTS, IT DOES NOT GIVE YOU THE RIGHT TO BASICALLY TORTUE AND ABUSE THEM ANY WAY U SEE FIT. THIS LADIE IS THE MOST UNPROFESSIONAL DENTIST I HAVE EVER HAD THE MISFORTUNE OF MEETING. FIRST OF ALL, WITH AN APPT, BE PREPARED TO WAIT AT LEAST 2-3 HOURS PASS YOUR APPT TIME. I ARRIVED WITH MY CHILD 20 MINS PRIOR TO HER APPT TIME BUT BECAUSE THEIR OFFICE MANAGEMENT SKILLS ARE LESS THAN AVERAGE, SHE HAD TO WAIT 2 HOURS TO B CALLED TO THE BACK AND SENT BACK OUT TO WAIT SOME MORE. MY KIDS ARE ABSOLUTELY AFRAID OF HER. NOT ONLY IS SHE RUDE, SHE IS A BULLY. AFTER MAKING MY 13 YEAR OLD NIECE WAIT 2 HOURS, SHE CALLS HER 2 THE BACK, GIVES HER NOVACAINE, SCOLDS HER FOR FOLDING HER ARMS BECAUSE SHE WAS COLD (YEAH...'NEXT TIME PUT ON SOME CLOTHES' IS WHAT SHE SAID TO HER) BUT THEN SHE HAD THE NERVE TO TELL HER SHE NEEDS TO COME TO HER APPT EARLY BECAUSE SHE WAS PUSHING HER SCHEDULE BACK.....? MY NIECE WAS N FACT ON TIME FOR HER APPT. SHE WAS SO HATEFUL WITH HER WORDS, SHE LITERALLY MADE HER CRY. WHEN HER MOM ASKED DR. DOOMS WHAT HAPPENED, SHE ACTUALLY THREW THEM OUT AND SAID THE MOTHER WAS BEING CONFRONTATIONAL (REALLY? BECAUSE SHE ASKED A ?) AND SHE WAS NOT GOING TO SEE THEM BUT I AM PRETTY SURE SHE IS GOING TO BILL MEDICAID. I WOULD NEVER....LET ME REITERATE....NEVER RECOMMEND ANYONE OR RETURN TO DR. DOOMS UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE. SHE IS A PRIME EXAMPLE OF HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS MILKING THE GOVERNMENT OF FUNDS, FOR PISS POOR SERVICE. SHE FEELS LIKE BECAUSE THAT IS HER BUSINESS, SHE CAN DO WHATEVER SHE LIKES TO PEOPLE, WHICH MAY BE TRUE IN A SENSE, BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE STILL GOING TO CONTINUE TO PATRONIZE HER BECAUSE SHE IS ONE OF THE FEW DENTIST WHO ACCEPTS MEDICAID IN OUR AREA (15TH ST). HOWEVER, MY FAMILY AND I WILL NEVER RETURN TO HER FOR SERVICE. WHATEVER SHE HAS GOING ON AT HOME, (NO MAN, OR HE'S CHEATING, ALL THAT BITTERNESS, HATRED AND ANGER SHE HAS IN HER HEART) SHE NEEDS TO LEAVE AT HOME BEFORE SHE WALKS IN THAT OFFICE. BTW, IF YOU DON'T LIKE WHAT U DO, DO US ALL A FAVOR AND JUST QUIT. SHE IS A REALLY NASTY PERSON AND NEGATIVITY IS NOT SOMETHING THAT I TEACH MY KIDS AND NOTHING THAT I WILL HAVE THEM FALL VICTIM TO.
RUDE, RUDE, RUDE – I called this office from another dental office to request some x-rays for a patient that was leaving their office. After the way I was spoken to, I can see exactly why the patient no longer wants to visit this office. The staff member had a huge attitude, like how dare I ask for x-ray copies!!! There is such a thing as professional courtesy which this office obviously knows nothing about. The people in this office need to learn the correct way to speak to people......that is why they have so many poor reviews. I am not surprised one bit!! Good luck to anyone who dares step foot in this office!!!!!!
This Dentist ruined my teeth for life – I had a tramatic Experience.
after waiting at least 3 hours i was called back. they didnt tell me what i was scheduled for but the doctor made sure to yell out that i had terrible teeth. She scolded me and embarassed me until i let her inject me with the anesthetic. By the time i was done i went to my car and looked in the mirror--i was horriffied to see my teeth (#12-21...from premolar on top to premolar on bottom) filled with amalgam. (silver) I never had any dental pain before i went there and now i have these huge silver fillings with barley andy tooth structure left. I am postive my teeth weren't decayed as much as she made it seem. (im a dental assistant) so on my second appointment it went even worse she injected me and began to drill instantly. Whe n i flinched becasue of the sharp pain she told me how bad my teeth were and how i needed to behave because i was "grown." I explained that i wasnt numb and it was a reaction. she then proceeded to tell me that i needed to control my reactions or leave. I thn got up and left. I asked for copies of my xray (b/c medicaid wouldnt pay for another set) and they asked me for $65 dollars. Being on medicaid, and a full time student- she knew i didnt have the money. in fact she knows that all her medicaid patients dont have the money- yet she still tries to charge because she knows she's done something wrong. I will most likley have to get crowns on all the teeth she worked on. I am emotionally hurt and do intend on filing a claim against her. I know i am not the only one with this type of experience. too bad medicaid patients are so helpless.
Sorry about the typos, the run-on sentences and the lack of time i put into this review. The only thing i care about at this point is letting everyone know what happened to me in that office.
THIS PLACE SUCKS – i went here about an infected mouth and they told me come back in 6 weeks so they can fix the tooth cosing the problem. well 6 weeks latter in went back it toke 2 hours to get back then i got Novocaine not even 3 minutes latter they started to dill i told doom it wasn't numb and she said its almost over i hert so bad let alone the hole time she was yelling at her assistant .she was waring theses lose bracelets that keep geting in the way.after it was done she said get out i looked to my right and say a machen with dried blood on it this was bull and i think i could have done better my self in the mirror.
Awesome and Caring establishment! – I had to go here when i was pregnant and i was so scared they immediately comforted me and before anything was done they advised me of what needed to be done, they also take emergency cases is why someone may experience a long wait time but if you have an appointment you should be in and out within an hour or so depending on what you have done. the work was excellent and i have been nothing but satisfied with this office since i have been going!! A+++ i always recommend them to anyone!
Dr. Doom – Beware!!! The name tells all about this office. Unbelieveably rude staff, overbooked waiting room and no chairside manner.
Dr. Dooms is RIGHT! – Unprofessional, to say the least. First off, they won't let parents go back with their children. My son went in and came out with a filling, without even consulting me. Not to mention they told my I had to have 8 teeth drilled, and when I looked myself I didn't see any cavities. When I questioned this, the doctor was very rude and told me she was sending my to an oral surgeon to have my wisdom teeth removed. This struck me as suspicious since the week before I asked about that and I was showed my X-ray and told I didn't need them removed. Again I brought this up to the doctor and she told me she had just gotten my x-ray in, even though it was shown to me the week before. DO NOT GO TO THIS DENTIST!
