Dr. Steven Abel is a Liar, Crook and all around HORRIBLE DENTIST!!!

I went to see Dr. Steven Abel (DMD) in Mount Kisco for treatment. He insisted on taking a full mouth series of X-Ray's which I can understand, but what I couldn't understand is why he insisted on using the old style film X-Rays. Especially, since he advertises on his own website that Digital X-Ray's are safer for the patient. Most dentists have switched over to digital, but he hasn't. He tries to lead the public to believe that he has a digital X-Ray machine and he is up on the latest technology for the sake of his patients health, but that is FALSE!!! If that were true, why take old style film? I argued with him about this a good half hour and he continued to insist that film is safer, therefore, contradicting himself and putting my health at risk. Furthermore, he, himself complained that the copies of the last X-Ray's I had weren't well done, so I didn't want another issue with taking new old style film X-Rays. He insisted that his X-Rays would be perfect and the copies would be just as good as the originals. Well, they were NOT! Not only did he take film X-Rays, which exposed me to a higher level of radiation, but when I brought the copies to another dentist, the other dentist told me that they weren't even taken properly and he couldn't make anything out. The treatment plan Steven Abel suggested would have cost me over $40,000 and when I wanted something else, he became very indignant and refused to treat me all. He also hates to be questioned. As a patient, I am supposed to ask questions, as a doctor, he's supposed to answer then, but instead, he becomes extremely threatened. So now I'm stuck with the following: A. Worthless X-Ray copies (he refused to give me the originals even though I paid for them). B. Excessive radiation which could have and should have been avoided if he indeed had what he claims he has a Digital X-Ray machine. C. No treatment and having to get new X-Ray's from a new dentist done all over again. This so called man, (I refuse to dignify his name with a title of dentist), is a crook, a cheapskate, a lunatic and an all around absolute low life! Of course, I could be a bit more colorful in my phrasing with the words that would much better describe him, but I am trying to avoid those phrases as a courtesy to this website. Lets just say Dr. Steven Abel is nothing more than a piece of ..... !

You sound like the real low-life.

If you can't sympathize, than you are an even bigger low life than that dentist. If not him.

You must be that dentist the person wrote about or you wouldn't be saying that.
