Last year, I came across a purple spot on my lower gingiva. As a dental hygienist, I was aware that this was not normal and because it appeared rapidly, I knew to be concerned. I initially contacted the oral surgeon who had previoulsy removed my sons wisdom teeth and was told they could see me in two weeks!!! My anxiety level was so high, there was no way I could wait that long. I did a brief internet search and came across Dr Engel. To make a long story short, within 3 hours, I was in their office for a "look see". The doctor recommended a biopsy for definitive diagnosis. To my delight, they moved me into another room and in a half hour, I was out the door, biopsy complete. I was told the biopsy results would take about a week. Just shy of a week, I called and was told they had not received them yet but would call me asap when they arrived. Not 15 minutes later, they called and said a fax had just come thorough and could I come in? I went in, had a visit with Dr Engel and was told the results were normal...likely trauma induced. What a relief. Basically, my entire experience was over before I could even get into the other oral surgeon. As a patient this time, rather than a care provider, I truly appreciated it!!!!
