an Oral surgeon's office charge 400.oo for an extraction in April for a friend that could not wait to get his dental insurance
co.'s OK, because of a gum infection and severe pain. We paid prior to the procedure being done. 4 wk later they charge another friend 250.oo for the same molar extraction, and she had dental ins. and also paid out of pocket.
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: no. He has continued to have sever pain, went to see his G.P. last week, had blood draw because of the infection, and was told there is still a tooth particle in his gum. We are going back to the original surgeon tomorrow to have this taken care of, but , the office wants 250 for a followup visit.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: yes, prior to seeing the surgeon in his own office, my friend was in a hospital ER for the pain and infection. we were there approx.5 hr. before the oral surgeon came and confirmed the*Yes, that tooth has to come out", which we told the attending ER physician when we got there. But, the hospital ER was not equipted for tooth extraction, and treated his pain. The 5.5 hrs into the visit the Oral Surgeon that the hospital called, arrived and looked into is mouth and made the conclusion. That's when we decided to go to his office 3 days later for the extraction service. since the hospital physician and attending nurse, and staff made the decision to get this Dr. to come into the ER @ the end of the day, we believed he was a part of the facility.
