Basic Information
I had been with this practice for about 5 years before Dr. Baldwin took over, when Dr. Vijeh was still the owner. During my first visit to Dr. Baldwin, she told me I had periodontal gum disease. She didn't explain what this was, just that I had it and I needed a deep cleaning. Of course she also failed to advise that my insurance may or may not cover this (very painful) procedure. Learned my lesson: ALWAYS GET A SECOND OPINION. Some dentists like Dr. Baldwin act are just the same as automechanic scammers, who take advantage of people who trust their professional authority and take it at face value. When my insurance refused to cover the deep cleaning procedure, I had to pay Dr. Baldwin an additional $650 out of pocket. I've since found a new dentist who confirmed that I do not have periodontal gum disease. Also, while Dr. Baldwin was working on my teeth, she had a constant chat session going on with her dental hygienist about her personal life. It was extremely unprofessional and off-putting. This woman is a greedy con artist who doesn't care about her patients.
