Staten Island, NY |
PROFIT-DRIVEN, DIFFICULT-TO-DEAL-WITH DENTIST PUSHING UNNECESSARY SERVICES. She's got an attitude problem and a chip on her shoulder apparently, being a difficult person to deal with, speaks to children and parents with a bad attitude, unless of course $$$ is involved. Do you like pushy sales tactics? How about being yelled at when declining to x-ray preschool children with no signs of having to do so? How about being pressured and questioned at every visit after already declining? Phyllis
