Navid Bahrami DDS — dishonest to patients
I took my father to this dentist office on Nov 12, 2010.This doctor Navid stated that he accepted my father's dental insurance and he was in network. Comes to find out that Navid never applied my father's dental insurance. Navid lied to us about being in network. Navid wanted to charge us $6055.20 for a lower denture and couple of extractions. Navid told us that my father's insurance wasn't even going to cover 10% of the bill. The reason why I took my father to Navid in the first place was because he was our family dentist for the past 2years. I trusted Navid. I never thought that Navid would deceive us. I confronted Navid about not being in network he replied that he was in network. Navid stated that the dental insurance representatives didn't know what they were talking about. I found out that my father has excellent dental coverage. With a dentist in network we are only liable to pay $425.00 for a lower denture, with extractions. WE couldn't believe it, we tried to talk to Navid about this. Navid deny everything and said that we were responsible for $2360.00. Navid told us that the impression of the dentures were in process we were responsible for it. Not to mention that Navid open up a "Carecredit" card for us, he charged the full amount $6055.20 that same day.To make this long story short this dentist Navid schemes his patients.
