Ratings for Dr. Rick S. Brar
Although I think Dr. Brar is a nice man and does give really good shots and procedures were pain free. I am now in pain with the 2 root canals he did. I can't even touch the 2 teeth without being in pain. I am now having problems with the teeth next to the ones he worked on. The appearance of the crowns and the colors look good but not happy with the pain. I still have an outstanding balance with them even after all the money and insurance paid to the office. I now have to go to another dentist to correct the problems he created. Not sure what I will do with the balance, thinking about going after the office for my expenses of new dentist once I find out what is wrong.
I've been pretty happy with Dr. Brar's skills over the 8 years he has been my dentist. He is a master of the Novocaine needle (i.e., painless)and does a great job with crowns. Crowns have been about 1k a piece and he makes them on site based on 3d imaging. Staff is good with getting payments from insurance companies.
This is the worst dental office I have ever been to. They are money hungry, and the office manager was super rude. They tried to bill me for procedures that I had already paid for. I do not understand how they stay in business. They are extremely unprofessional. I have told Sophie (office manager) at dozen times about the issue and nothing has changed. I will never go back to this office. BE CAREFUL! Unless you like being ripped off. You will be shocked when you receive your bill. 200+ for a 10 min cleaning that is ridicules.
Still haven't received a bill from April and Novemer 2011 work. I called several times and was told they weren't at the office with my paperwork and would call me back tomorrow, haven't heard from them. Listened to the male receptionist yelling at the receptionist at the other location about how they need to get paperwork filed. Got two filings redone, and wish I never had. One still has rough edges which if I hadn't told the doctor to file down woudl have stuck out severely. He was obviously in a hurry and didn't care that he was doing poor work. The dental assistant was nice, but dropped a couple of f bombs. Thank goodness my new insurance doesn't cover him because now we can't go back! DO NOT GO TO THIS DENTIST!
My oral health had been excellent with no cavities within the last 15 years, so imagine my shock when Dr. Brar told me that I had 8 new cavities and that my existing 3 fillings needed replacement....estimated cost $961.00 I expressed disbelief that I could incur that many cavities so quickly but he assured me that it could happen. I left the office in disbelief and later sought out a different doctor for a second opinion. After an exam with a different doctor (while keeping the knowledge of Dr. Brar's findings to myself) I was told that I was cavity free. In my opinion Dr. Brar and his staff are con artists that are bilking their patients out of their money.
