"I would give zero stars if that were an option. He was going to do a procedure on me but after getting in there, decided to not do the invasive work because he realized there was a less invasive way to get the desired results. I had already paid for the original procedure in full upon arrival that day. He would not offer a refund nor give me my records when requested. He later said that he did in fact do the procedure that I paid for and that I didn’t know what I was talking about. When I told him I was going to get a lawyer involved, he refunded me a partial payment. Still lying the whole time about cutting into my gums and doing a bone graft. Complete gaslighting. I had no stitches or recovery. And I have a clear memory of him and his assistant explaining to me the alternative treatment he decided on. My father in law drove me to that appointment and heard the whole thing as well so can’t blame it on any meds."

"Not only is this man have a suspended medical license but he's also a drunk. That's why he lost his medical license. Anyways he's a regular customer at my store and I always helped him. He's always driving something nice so I asked him what he was doing for a living he said he was an oral surgeon. Then he asked if I thought about ever getting my teeth fixed. I told him of course I thought about it but I work at a gas station I don't have that kind of money. He proceeds to show me pictures on his phone of a Ferrari he just bought that day and said he's all about paying it forward now. An offered to do it for free. I'm a man and I don't cry and he had me crying in the parking lot. I bragged to everybody. Everybody was so happy for me. I finally thought I was catching my break in life. I make my appointment to get my molds and my x-rays never once being asked for a cent. At that appointment I brought him a model Ferrari just to show any kind of appreciation I could cuz I'm broke. To his nurse ...
calls me a few days later and tells me it's going to be $6,000 and it's due its time of service. I told her how me and Dr Alex discussed how he was paying it forward to me. She said she would check and get back to me never did. He never comes into the store anymore and avoids me completely. This would have cost this man nothing he does it for a living. Paying it forward is doing three things for three different people that changes their lives. I thought he had changed mine but he really crushed me. I hate this man and hate is a strong word for me. If I was you I wouldn't give this man a cent "

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.
