Terrible. Not interested in solving or treating, just surgery. The entire appointment was a waste of time, not to mention he was over an hour late and spent less than 5 minutes with me.

I am very sorry for the inconvenience that this caused you. I did my best explaining my reasoning for canceling your surgery. We have made changes so instances like yours are not repeated. Under the circumstances, I did not feel safe moving forward with surgery as I felt that your dental problems put you at risk of catastrophic complications. Again, I apologize for any inconvenience that this caused you, but I will err on the side of patient safety every time. I wish you the best going forward.
