On 2/04/2002 I went to the dentist and after they claimed that work was done that was not. I have been disputing this since febuary and they avoid my calls and are charging late fees. They have over billed the insurance and me. they refuse to resolve this matter.
they charged for a "full mouth Debridement" when the insurance would not pay for that they changed it to "periodontal scaling" neither of which did they perform .

Desired Settlement: Other (requires explanation)
Settlement Explanation:

I will pay $89.40 out of the $322.87. The 89.40 is the total amount due minus the made-up charges and late fees

Dentist Loses Law Suit

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

Stephen A. Walker took me to small claims court in February to try to claim the money he was trying to get from me but he didn't even show up for court himself he sent his Acounts recievable clerk that I had never even met instead.
She could not prove that I owed the money, and the case was dismissed. They had 10 days to appeal and I have not yet heard anything more from them so I assume they decided it was cheaper to not have me pay the money I did not owe than try to sue me again for it.
