Ratings for Dr. Miranda Richardson
Dr Richardson put a filling in a tooth that I was having no problems with. Would not have known about it if it weren’t for an X-ray I got for another issue. It got infected. I went in, she took another X-ray, said all looked good. Next day I called in saying I was in a lot of pain, she wasn’t in, her assistant gave me prescription for antibiotics and analgesics. I was told to call Dr on the week end if it got worse. Sat, I was in excruciating pain, cheek swollen, tried calling her all day! She never answered phone and never called me back!
I had a periodontist fix the gums dr. Richardson accidentally cut out. Half my molar was drilled off without much explanation. She was exploring because X-ray didn’t show why I had pain in that tooth. Terrible. And her assistant did all the explaining. Strange. And the cap she put on had space for food to go in and sit under cap. I had abscess because of it. Highly unprofessional and many other dentists told me this should never have happened. I left to get proper cap put on and gums sewn up.
I was a recent patient of Miranda's . I went in concerned about my wisdom teeth. I then was advised that I needed other work done, and that was fine. I gave the receptionist my insurance information and told her that whatever they do has to be within my insurance plan as I can't afford to pay much out of pocket. They set up a treatment plan and i again reminded the reception that i could not do anything that my insurance wouldn't cover. My treatment plan was mapped out for the next few months. I attended the appointments without much problem. Miranda tried to be gentle and her aids were very nice. I do have a few issues with the work she did but my major problem is that once most of my work was finished i get a phone call from reception about an hour before my appointment and was told that i had a substantial amount owing and not to be surprised when i came in that day. Of course o was surprised !!! I am covered by two separate insurance companies! I should owe next to nothing. I then cancelled my upcoming appointments until my insurance claims were put through and I could see an accurate account bill..this morning which is almost a month after my last appointment I get a call from reception asking if I would be attending an appointment on the 20th. I them asked her if she had gotten my previous bill sorted out and she continues to tell me that putting insurance claims through "WAS NOT HER JOB!" ... At the end of all this i still do not have any answers about my wisdom teeth and i was coaxed into getting treatment that i didn't want and now have to pay out of pocket for.... So not impressed !!
I am very pleased with the care provided by Dr. Richardson. I find her to be very thorough, professional and gentle in the treatment she provides. Dr. Richardson is very knowledgable in her practice and provides sound advice. I appreciate Dr. Richardson's attention to detail and her commitment to ensuring that her patients recieve the best possible care. I used to have a fear of going to the dentist, but I am now quite comfortable with it since I have begun seeing Dr. Richardson. My family also sees Dr. Richardson and we have all had positive experiences there.
My last visit was ridiculous! I went in to get a cavity filled, but let her know that my bottom teeth were not bothering me but I had severe pain in one of my top teeth. She said "we'll do this bottom one today and deal with that one another time" are you kidding me. Uh...no. After 5 shots with the needle (still not frozen) I told her to just do it and get it over with. She drilled until I couldn't handle it anymore about 8 or 9 times until the procedure was done. She replaced my dentist that retired and now I will definately be replacing her. Guess you wont be getting my money for those top teeth after all.
