Since moving back to Florida I was in need of a new dentist and I had a few problems with my teeth that I wanted addressed. I received a postcard in the mail from Dr. Weisel of Family Dentistry of Largo. The "New Patient" special promised Cleaning, Exam & Xrays for $59. Let me specify that there were no disclaimers or small print stating that there were exceptions to the offer.
On or about 12/27/13 I called their office and explained that I had received the card in the mail with the $59 special but it was to expire at the end of 2013. She said it would not be a problem and they would honor the offer so I made an appointment and showed up a few minutes early on Jan. 6 with all the paperwork already filled out that I had downloaded from their Website.
It was almost 45 minutes before they finally brought me into the exam room. The assistant took Xrays and left the room. About 30 minutes later the doctor finally came in and introduced himself, then proceeded to examine my teeth. [continued below]....
I told her I was very dissatisfied and planned on leaving. She asked me to wait while they figured out what they could do. After another ten minutes of waiting, I got up and went to the front desk. The assistant and the receptionist were working at the computer putting a revised estimate together and presented it to me showing that they were going to take $19 off the price because I would not be getting the minimum cleaning but was to get the advanced cleaning instead. I told her I had been in the office as a new patient for over two hours and I had nothing to show for it. I did not get the cleaning, I had a brief conversation and exam by the dentist, and I had Xrays that were of no value to me because I had no plans to return because of the fraudulent experience.
Again, let me clearly state the the offer was for exam, cleaning and Xrays... no exceptions to that offer. She finally told me I did not have to pay anything, knowing fully well I had no intention of paying for this waste of over two hours of my time plus travel back and forth. It's a disgrace that professionals are taking advantage of people at a time when everyone is trying to make ends meet.
