On October 26, 2016, I saw Dr. Gavigan for a a Endoscopy and Colonoscopy and during the Endoscopy my front crown and implant broke and since it hasn't been over 10 years of initially getting the crown & implant, My Insurance (Assurant) won't cover the impant itself which leaves me paying $924.50 to Dr. Pak. I do not have that kind of money and really felt like Dr. Gavigan's office should stepped up and helped me with this or even cover all of it since my portion of the crown was $300 already.

I was told to get an appointment with this doctor. What is the phone number! And I'm suppose to talk to someone named Genna. I've called and called and I'm not getting anywhere. For the record Dr. Gavigan voicemail system needs a whole lot of work. I'm trying to be polite as possible.
