Very rude and condescending to me and my daughter. Rude to his staff. Made fun of my daughter before she was completely under anesthesia and she heard everything. Charged maximum price for all 4 wisdom teeth and double anesthesia when she didn't need it. Never going back.

Quite possibly the most dysfunctional group. Getting a prescription refilled is painfully slow and it takes 2-4 phone calls or visits every time. I've brought this to her attention and she doesn't care.
