Dr. Zietz Family Dentistry and Orthodontics — dr zietz crowned me
Dr. Zietz promised me credit for a botched root canal. He agreed to it in his own records. I continued making payments after that until my balance was roughly what the root canal was originally charged. No credit appeared on any statements.
Why is it that when someone posts a negative review, it is suddenly countered by 2 positive reviews? In my opinion Dr. Zietz should be reprimanded for the false, fraudulent and deceptive Internet postings by him, his wife and / or employees DE. 6.02(1). I also feel he should lose his license for endangering a patient’s health, welfare and safety DE 5.02 (1, 2). He allowed me to walk around with continuous infections from his work, which he occasionally would treat with antibiotics and percodan. He re-cemented the crown and charged me for it over and over again but the crown was never loose, the tooth was. He did this for four and a half years without ever getting to the root of the problem. I have only recently learned that in cases of dental abscess, a root canal done with reasonable skill and safety would "normally be recommended in an attempt to save the tooth". (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.…). This would seem to indicate that root canals are usually the treatment for abscesses, not the cause.
