Ratings for Dr. Charles Minett
WOULDN'T RECOMMEND TO ANYONE. Got all my wisdom teeth removed in February, had to go in for surgery again in July. Because I wasn't healing properly yet during all of the check-up appts he said nothing was wrong. Maybe if he'd properly stitch me up the first time I would've healed faster. I was numb for months and couldn't eat for almost a straight month- and he says thats normal. Whats worst then missing a few hours of work having to travel 1.5hours to get to this office? The fact that they CANCELLED when I was a block away. Not to mention, after having infections after infections they still expect you to come down and trust Dr.Minett on your mouth. The office needs some updates, no computer, not suppose to use cell phones--it's the 21st century. If anyone comes to me in the future for advise towards this Dr. office, I would NEVER suggest it.
I had major surgery done on my right jaw and am thankful for his services. Yes he was delayed - this was because he was helping another patient and I cannot complain about this. The surgery went well and he explains this so well. Furthermore, the staff accomodated my anxiety of dentists. They even changed my perscription when I found I had bad side effects from one - with one phone call. I would highly recommend this surgeon.
Meticulous and seemingly competent, however Dr. Minett was extremely rude and condescending. The appointment dragged out three times longer than necessary as he explained the most minute detail to me for the benefit of his teaching aid. When I very politely explained that I understood the concept of 3D imaging in hopes of speeding up the overblown explanation, I was treated to a withering look, shaking of head and continuation of the primary school lesson as his teaching aid looked on in pity. I understand a teaching practise, however he sure didn't teach respecting the intellect of the patient, and I fail to believe that his medical school helper didn't understand the difference between two dimensional and three dimensional.
Had all 4 wisdom teeth removed in my late 20s. I was referred by my DDS because it was too complex to do in the dental office, and saw Dr. Minett for the consultation within a week. It was a complicated extraction because I'd waited so long. The consultation went smoothly; Dr. Minett explained everything to me very matter-of-factly and put me at ease while still apprising me of the risks. I was able to get the surgery booked quickly, and it went perfectly smoothly. I got exactly what was expected based on his consultation. The staff were so nice. I had a few more weeks of pain then I'd have liked, mostly due to my age and the complexity of the surgery, but Dr. Minett saw me every week to check in. Everyone was fantastic and dealt with me professionally. On a few of my follow-ups he was running late and I was seen 30 minutes later than my appointment, which was my only criticism. I have no complications and am doing very well.
Had my one wisdom tooth removed when I was a teen years ago by Dr. Minett. I always had to wait a long time for my follow up appointments regardless of if I got there early. Staff wasn't great and Dr. Minett always made me feel uncomfortable with him. Turns out he cut one of my nerves while extracting the tooth and said the numb feeling in the right side of my face would eventually go away. It's been 8 years, and I still have the numbness.
Minett was recommended to me from my regular dentist. I got an appointment right away, and had 4 wisdom teeth pulled in less than a month. Minett was very thorough in his questions and he took the time time to explain how the procedure would take place. He also got me a CT scan in quick time to help with the assessment of why I required my teeth to be pulled. The staff are polite and helpful as I somewhat recall them moving me to the recovery room and greeting me upon entry. They had all the items I needed (common questions and answers, prescriptions DR's note), in order to help me better recuperate. Parking is the only downfall I have to mention , but that is everywhere downtown.
Staff was absolutely terrible. They were rude, disrespectful and completely unhelpful.
