Day one: Absessed tooth, in major pain. I have coverage through Denti-Cal, but do not have the card with me and can not provide an acount number. But not to worry, they have a solution so that I won't have to suffer any longer.

After being examined, it is determined that I need much more work done than just a tooth extraction. The "primary treatment plan" they show me totals $6881.00

The dentist, more accurately, Emily, (the person who takes payments and arranges for credit for Dr. Lim) gets me approved for credit via "Care Credit" a consumer credit card program from GE Money Bank. Emily assures me that the credit approval is just to cover the proceedures which are not covered by Denti-Cal. Most of the proceedures outlined are covered by my insurance, some of which need pre-authorization from Denti-Cal, just a formality.

Emily tells me there will be no interest and no payments for one year. Nothing is said as to the amount of available credit, or that they will charge for all proceedures in advance.

They MAXED OUT the care credit account to the tune of $5500.00!!

All of the worked performed on Day One was COVERED BY MY INSURANCE!! They didn't need to charge a dime in order to get paid....they didn't even need pre-authorization for any of the work done on day one.

That's not all!!! come to find out later that Dr. Lims' office charged Denti-Cal too !!!!

They got PAID TWICE!!! They billed Denti-Cal after charging me up the A**. and now they refuse to corect it.

Meanwhile, Care Credit wants thier money... no payments for a year, a lie!!! with out making minimum payments each month, the interest was jacked up from 0% to 22.98% plus all the late fees and over limit penalties (remember they maxed me out from day one)...

NOT A TRUE FACT! - REPORT PROOVED TO BE INACURATE AND BAD INTENTIONED!!!

AUTHOR: Christina C. - (U.S.A.)

The way Anne comments on the issue it very inaccurate and since she knows there is no legal implication with us,and that everything was cleared out, she is trying to destroy our respected and well deserved reputation though the Internet.

Anne came to our practice and we showed her the treatment plan which she gladly agreed and signed all documents necessary for the treatment. Her complaint is based on untrue facts and has been resolved with the legal authorities. The complaint filed with Denti-Cal was dismissed, everything was paid appropriately, NOT TWICE as mentioned in the report.

***THIS IS AN HONEST PRACTICE, YOU CAN ASK ANY OF OUR PATIENTS AND YOU'LL SEE WE HAVE HIGH VALUE STANDARDS AND THE BEST INTENTIONS WITH OUR PATIENTS***

George D. Lim, DMD, Inc.:ANNE'S COMPLAINT W/ LEGAL VENUES DISMISSED, USES INTERNET TO DESTROY OUR REPUTATION!!!

AUTHOR: Carlos4gdlim - (U.S.A.)

Anne was seen in our office and has been presented the treatment plan which she accepted. Anne signed all documents pertaining to the treatment including documents for CareCredit application, Consent Form for treatment about to be rendered, and other documents necessary before a treatment can be rendered.

Her complaint with the proper, legal authorities were dismissed including the complaint filed with Denti-Cal, which she mentioned has paid for services that were paid for already. The Denti-Cal decision basically throws out the allegation that George D. Lim, DMD, Inc. charged twice for the same services.

Anne, through William, has posted a report here which borders on legally actionable lies, innuendos, and half-truths. Since she cannot win in legal venues, Anne wants to destroy the good reputation of the office through the internet because of the ease to post and communicate.

I have posted this rebuttal because of the comments of some of our patients that they have seen this ugly posting and urged us to reply to it.

You need to REPORT this and here's how!

AUTHOR: Nadia - (U.S.A.)

TURN THEM IN. What your dentist did is called FRAUD. Simply call your DA or look on a search engine websites under "report dentical fraud" (be sure to run the words denti and cal together for proper results). They'll give you lists of phone numbers and persons to contact. File with every single one of them. They'll enjoy throwing his sorry *bleep in jail. If the editor here will kindly allow me, the official contact number to report Provider Medi-Cal fraud is 800-722-0432.
