I visited Dr. Alpert's office in 11/2012 for a partial denture. The total for her treatment plan was $4,930. Since I don't have dental insurance, cost is a consideration, so I wanted a second professional opinion. I paid my $89 bill and requested an electronic copy of my dental x-rays, however, instead of the 14 or 16 x-rays that were taken, all I got was seven and I noticed quickly that none of them provided details on the treatment area related to the denture. The office manager told me that these x-rays were all they have. On my question what happened to the other pics, she told me they were deleted. I was in total disbelief how they could throw out those x-rays that were absolutely critical to performing the treatment.
The second dentist told me that she needed to take four more x-rays for her evaluation. So I was exposed to unnecessary x-rays and had to pay extra because Dr. Alpert's office does not respect basic patient interests when they want a second opinion.
The second dentist will only charge me $1,288, a 74% savings. I cannot recommend Dr. Alpert's office.
