I really didn't like this dentist. I felt that his hands were too forceful and rough, like he was going to split my lower lip with his stretching. I definitely would not go with this dentist again.

Dr. Gifford had some procedures performed on me and prescribed antibiotics for me to take. Without checking my medical file or consulting me he prescribed an antibiotic that I am highly allergic to, which caused a very serious reaction. I had to see my family physician for treatment. If he had simply looked at my file or even checked my record for the previous 2 procedures he performed on me he would have seen this allergy.

Furthermore, Dr. Gifford requires payment up front. He charged me $140.00 then $863.00. After these charges were submitted to my insurance company, I found out that the contracted amounts for these procedures are only $65.00 and $258.00. When I asked him why he charged me so much more he told me he was no longer a provider for my insurance company. I asked since when but he couldn??t tell me. I asked why I wasn??t informed. He said ??I don??t do that.? So I called my insurance company to see when he stopped being a provider and they confirmed that HE IS STILL AN ACTIVE PROVIDER. Needless to say, my insurance company has filed a formal complaint against his office.
