The last time I saw Doctor Cox was on an occasion when I forgot to take antibiotics prior to having a dental cleaning. She was not happy that the cleaning could not take place. She then examined my teeth and ordered three x-rays. I was then charged an amount similar to what the cleaning would have cost. It is important to note that I recently had a dental exam by Doctor Cox. It is also important to be aware of the fact that I had previously requested that the office limit the amount of x-rays to the barest minimum. I am a cancer patient, now in remission, who has had my fair share of pet scans, cat scans and chest x-rays. Doctor Cox was informed of this.
I feel that Doctor Cox re-examined me and ordered the x-rays so that she felt justified in charging me an amount equivalent to the charges for the cancelled teeth cleaning.
