I had a very bad fall leading me to call this Emergency Exchange number, and Dr. Michael S. Luce was nice enough to meet me the following morning for emergency dental care. That's as far as the niceness goes, I'm afraid. He misdiagnosed one of my issues, which I wouldn't have known about had he not sent me to a specialist regarding another separate issue. Luckily, the other doctor took care of both issues, but when I went back to Dr. Luce's office and told him I would be finding a different doctor, he and his staff chided me, giving me a very long lecture about why I shouldn't and then talked bad about other dental clinics in the Corpus Christi area. Because they made me feel so uncomfortable, I asked my fiance to call and request my records, but then they got onto him too! By this time, I was in absolute shock. I firmly requested my x-rays and both he and his staff REFUSED to give them to me!!! Specifically, his receptionist/assisting dental nurse stated, "Because we don't know who you're going to and we may not like them." After a 5-minute heated conversation, his assisting nurse finally said she would have my x-rays ready, but the next morning I received a call back from Dr Luce himself who left a message -- still chiding my decision and stating that he refused to give me the x-rays unless he mailed them, knowing I was not in the condition to wait for mail. The lack of professionalism is irrehensible and it scares me that unassuming people will be calling this doctor simply because they have an emergency hotline...this is where they get the majority of their action. I can't say it enough -- BE CAREFUL; GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!!

Dr. Luce is a good and honest dentist. I went to see him after being told by another dentist I needed a root canal and cap and he was able to see on my x-ray that I only needed a cap (saving me an extra $600 root canal!). Plus, he didn't try to sell me anything else I didn't come in for. His price for the cap was less than some other offices I checked. His office is not as fancy as some other ones I have been to, but the work he did looks and feels great. He is a nice honest doctor, which is difficult to find nowadays. I would recommend him to anyone that wants nice work at a good price without all the hidden charges and unneeded work.
