I have been duped by this terrible dentist. She had done a filling on one of my teeth. But after doing the filling, she also recommended me fillings on 3 other teeth. I didn’t know I had this many cavities. Having cavities in 4 teeth should’ve made my life hell. But she said that she had seen the cavities and it was in my best interest to get a dental filling. Well, when I got there for the treatment, she handed my case to some other dentist. She did the 3 fillings as discussed before. I thought it was alright. But those unnecessary fillings made my life worse. After a few months, I began to face toothache in 2 of those additionally filled teeth. When I consulted Dr. Patel or this problem, she told me that I’ll need to get another tooth extracted. Apparently, one of my teeth with a filling was rotting. I went to another dentist to get a second opinion. I had already paid Dr. Patel a lot for simple dental fillings. But I wasn’t certain if I needed another treatment from her clinic. After all, I had gotten the filling done in her clinic. There shouldn’t have been any such issues. The other dentist, who I had visited for a second opinion that the fillings were done really terribly and had, in fact, left an opening on those two teeth. Those openings caused an infection and that was making my life literal hell. The dentist who had done my fillings at Patel\’s clinic had literally ruined my dental health. I needed a serious treatment for those fillings. I complained about it to Dr. Patel She said she didn’t take any responsibility for this issue because this problem might have arisen because of my lack of discipline. She was saying that I didn’t maintain oral hygiene and started giving me a long lecture about the importance of hygiene. She is not a professional. She is an arrogant and stupid dentist who is too full of herself. After hearing my complaint, she also asked me where I got this idea from. When I told her I had gotten a second opinion from some other dentist, she started saying that I was a moron to go someplace else. According to her, she’s the best dentist in the entire city and there’s no dentist who can understand his level of work. She started calling that other dentist names and that was enough for me. I realized this woman is out of her mind and she just doesn’t care about her patient’s health. I have heard of negligent dentists and I’m certain that Dr. Patel is one of them. If I were you, I’d stay as far from her clinic as possible. This place is just not worth visiting.
