Patient Comments (1)
in Hilton Head Island, SC |
Dr. Fingar and his staff are wonderful. On a recent visit for a repair of cracked crown, Dr. Fingar's staff got me an appt. on the same day. Dr. Fingar spent time to ensure it fit properly. When it came time to check out, I was informed there was no charge because Dr. Fingar had put in the original crown. I was also told he stands behind his crowns for 5 years. This speaks to his character and his commitment to his patents.
