I love Dr Mcllveen and the staff - having said that, I am extremely disappointed tho in the resulting bill for a simple tooth pull. I really would have expected and appreciated *anyone* at all, over the two separate entire visits to the practice where we discussed my daughter's loose tooth (that just wouldn't seem to come out on its own) and how that would play out with billing from our insurance (which did provide half coverage). I didn't see it as elective surgery - the loose tooth was months long in falling out and was impacting the teeth growing around it, and thats something I will indeed follow up with our Carefirst insurance. Secondly tho - I am aghast at the price quoted for some time and gas to effect the pull, hundreds and hundreds of dollars seems exorbitant to the effect that I'm considering switching to another practice.
So, the only way I can ensure my feedback is looked at is to give them low marks - the truth is the staff is super nice and Dr McIllveen had an appropriately firm but friendly manner that worked extremely well for my son who is on the Aspergers scale on the Autism spectrum. I'm just upset at the pricing for something that I would consider the a rather common and routine 'help' that a Dentist citing care for children would cover. Feel free to reach out to me to discuss, thanks for taking the time to honestly review the feedback, I hope it makes it all the way to the practice and someone that can think about it.
