Tooth Extraction: "Drew Hawk" caused HORRIFIC PAIN, Hospitalization+ $10K in Bills.
DREW HAWK, "dentist" in CLARION, PA. caused me unnecessary pain, suffering and over $10K in Hospital and subsequent Dental bills (from a Qualified Dentist) to FIX THE DAMAGE caused by the SERIOUS INFECTION that resulted from a molar tooth extraction by HAWK, AND AN INFECTION OF THAT TOOTH THAT HE SHOULD HAVE DEALT WITH.
Not only did he ABANDON ME (AGAINST DENTIST CODE) while I suffered UNBEARABLE pain. Tooth extracted on Thursday afternoon, Nov 17, 2011, and HORRIFIC pain began on Friday evening, Nov 18, 2011, approximately 7 or 8pm. When the pain kept rising in severity, I called the dentist office on Friday evening, got a voicemail (expected that) and left a message that I was in severe pain. I got no return call. The next day (Saturday) I called the office, again. No return call. The next day (Sunday) I called the office, again and also his home number (which is listed) and left another message, begging for help with the pain and the significant swelling of my face on the side where the tooth had been extracted (I was actually crying). NO RETURN CALL.
On Monday, THREE (miserable, for me) DAYS LATER, his office called and told me I could come in if I wanted to. I saw the "poor excuse for the title: dentist" on Monday. He saw that my face was significantly swollen, and I believe that my eye was about 1/3 CLOSED at that point, like someone had punched me. He said "well you have an infection from the tooth that was pulled (No Kidding, huh?) and that it spread, which would probably cause me to have Root Canals in other teeth (Oh, THANKS A LOT. How Lovely!) and gave me a list of 3 root canal specialists, on the back of his card, that I could call for an appointment. I asked HAWK about giving me something to STOP THE SWELLING AND PAIN. He gave me a different Oral Antibiotic which I guess the "Uninformed, Unconcerned, Sadist s****.>
By Tuesday afternoon, on a chart of 1 to 10, the PAIN was a 15 AND MY EYE WAS CLOSED DUE TO THE SWELLING. I had NO CHOICE but to go the Emergency Rm. When the Doctor saw me, the FIRST thing he said to me was "Who did this to you?" At the time and because I was in SO MUCH PAIN, I didn't want to say, so my husband just said "a dentist". To my husband's and my surprise (actually, not a big surprise), one of the staff in the ER said, "was it DREW HAWK"? My husband asked if they had seen a lot of patients who had visited "HAWK" and they indicated that they had!!! The Doctor told me to expect to be in the ER for awhile because he was putting me on IV medication, and an IV was immediately put in my arm. The doctor prescribed an IV antibiotic to arrest the infection, an anti-inflammatory to help with the swelling AND a pain-killer (IV) which I found out was Dilaudid--look it up, it is like Morphine and is used for SEVERE PAIN!! The Doctor also gave me a prescription for Percocet tablets-look that up--again for severe pain, to take AS NEEDED, after I left the hospital. I guess A REAL DOCTOR SAW THAT I TRULY WAS IN EXCRUTIATING PAIN, AND NEEDED PAIN KILLER MEDICATION, AND THAT I DIDN'T HAVE SIGNS OF BEING A DRUG ABUSER!! (That comment by HAWK was SO WRONG AND UNNECESSARY, ESPECIALLY WHILE THE PATIENT (ME) WAS IN SUCH HORRIBLE PAIN! PEOPLE: IF HE SAYS THIS TO YOU, GET UP AND WALK OUT. DON'T STOP, DON'T PAY, JUST RUN (don't walk) OUT OF THIS HORRIBLE PERSON'S OFFICE. (HE'S POSING AS A GOOD "DENTIST" & EVEN THOUGH HE HAS A LICENSE, HE'S N-O-T A GOOD DENTIST!) I THINK (IF HE DID GRADUATE FROM ANY DENTAL SCHOOL) HE MUST HAVE HAD A "D" AVERAGE.
HAWK IS AN UNCARING, UNSKILLED, USELESS PIECE OF FLESH USING UP GOOD OXYGEN THAT SHOULD BE SAVED FOR OTHER REAL HUMANS. B-E-W-A-R-E!!!! DON'T LET "HAWK" WORK ON YOU FOR ANYTHING!! IF YOU'VE NEVER EXPERIENCED THE TREATMENT OF THIS HORRIBLE UN-PROFESSIONAL, D-O-N-T DO IT. IF YOU ARE A CURRENT PATIENT, LEAVE BEFORE YOU FIND OUT HOW "HAWK" CAN HURT YOU, FIND A-N-O-T-H-E-R REAL DENTIST, WHO REALLY CARES ABOUT THE PATIENT. A DENTIST WHO LEAVES HIS/HER CELL PHONE NUMBER ON THE VOICEMAIL AT THE OFFICE JUST IN CASE A PATIENT HAS AN EMERGENCY, AND WHO CALLS THE PATIENT TO CHECK IN WITH THEM IF THE TREATMENT WAS A PARTICULARLY DIFFICULT ONE! A DENTIST WHO A-C-T-U-A-L-L-Y C-A-L-L-S B-A-C-K WHEN YOU LEAVE A MESSAGE REGARDING HORRIBLE PAIN! THESE ARE A FEW WAYS TO GAUGE A TRULY CARING AND CONFIDENT PROFESSIONAL.
IF YOU ARE NOT CONVINCED ABOUT NEVER USING "HAWK", AFTER READING THE TRUE RECORD OF HOW I WAS TREATED AS A PATIENT, PLEASE ALSO CONSIDER THIS!! THE DERIVATION OF SIR NAMES, LIKE "HAWK", FOR INSTANCE!! BY STUDYING WHERE NAMES COME FROM AND WHY, YOU WILL FIND THE FOLLOWING: IF SOMEONE HAS A SIR NAME THAT IS A NOUN IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE, IT GENERALLY COMES FROM A LONG LINE OF PRIOR FAMILY WHO ORIGINALLY WERE NAMED FOR THEIR A-C-T-I-O-N-S AND/OR CHARACTERISTICS. THEREFORE CONSIDER THE DEFINITION OF: "HAWK" - This Definition from Dictionary.com: 1st definition: Bird of PREY. 3rd definition: Informal - a PERSON WHO PREYS ON OTHERS, as a sharper.
HOPING THAT I HELP OTHER UNSUSPECTING PATIENTS (NEW OR OLD) WHO MAY BE CONSIDERING OR ARE CURRENTLY USING DENTAL SERVICES FROM "HAWK", FOR YOUR OWN GOOD, PLEASE LISTEN TO ME, AND NOW, I REST MY CASE.
