Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

My elderly mother, retired teacher, and long time customer of Benjamin Vela was asked to “Get the F#%! out of his office!” and escorted out by the incompetent doctor himself. My mother was undeserving of this, she was humiliated and devastated to say the absolute least. The doctor was “offended” because my mother and I requested for him to make adjustments to one of his botched up denture implant jobs. Even though he was paid $17,000 to complete it, he refused to make it right and refused to refund my mother any portion of the money she paid to him. He yelled and threw a tantrum in front of other patients and his staff. For a second I thought he wanted to physically harm us. This mans behavior today was beyond unacceptable and the most unprofessional behavior I have ever witnessed by a doctor. If incompetence, aggression and arrogance is what you seek in a dentist... Dr. Benjamin Vela at Vela Dental Center-Southside is your guy! I will be making a formal complaint to the Board.
