He messed my surgery up and ultimately my jaw and my LIFE. I would never tell anyone to go to him. When I confronted him he would not take responsibility. It has been years since my surgery and I still have not been able to move past it.
Ms. Watson, After reviewing your situation, I believe miscommunication was a contributing factor to your discontent with us. It's been so many years ago that I cannot speak to how things were then. At this time, we strive for each patient to have an excellent experience with us. That didn't happen for you and for that I apologize. I encourage you to find a good dental provider who can help you find a way to have a better future dentally.

Dr. Melvin so he is the best doctor I ever have treating me. I am 72 year old man need all my upper teeth removed to put that denture in. But I do not want to be put under. Dr.Ford have listen and understand my needs. He and his team was very professional and efficient. I was lucky to find him. After the surgery is no pain at all. I be able to eat and enjoy Thanksgiving with my family. I will pass this on to other about my experience.Thanks again Dr. Ford for the great work. All the best. WB
