How Patients FeelPOSITIVE
I have been a customer of Dr Ueda for over ten years, and he seemed thorough and good but has always been good also at finding reasons to get me or my wife back in there to spend money regularly. My wife and I started to become suspicious after spending thousands of dollars with him so the last time he told me that I had another pressing issue that should be dealt with the following month, I let it go for almost two years with no problem. The other day I went to him to repair a broken filling that he did a couple years ago for $215 assuming it would be in that range but possibly more expensive, and he waited until he had shot me with novocaine three times to tell me he now charges up to $600 for a filling, and this visit would be up to $800.....to repair a broken filling he had put in. I said I would not pay that and offered $400 to which he laughed. He suggested I take my X-Ray and go to another Dentist which I did, he gave me a disc with the X-Ray. When I got to the next Dentist, they tried to open the file and the disc was empty. On top of that, the next dentist told me the tooth he was going to drill did not need repair or novocaine, however the other side of my mouth needed immediate attention, a fact he either overlooked or chose to ignore. I left angry and with a numb face and paid $80 for a blank disc and alot of lies. No way to treat a good customer, we will never go back. He had ample time to tell me his rates had gone up over 60%. You decide.
