Strasburg, PA |
My daughter had her wisdom teeth removed due to pain. Dr Vakkass quickly acted in removing them to. Very easy recovery after removal would highly recommend.

Be careful! After Dr. Vakkas' representative assured me that the cost of my visit would be paid by my insurance, it was not and Dr. Vakkas attempted to ruin my credit rating in his collection efforts. I actually asked his representative prior to the visit to make sure that my insurance would cover the visit, she said she did and payment wouldn't be a problem. After I got the $299 bill for his visit, Dr. Vakkas' rep told me that she doesn't have time to check out everyones' insurance. Dirty!
