Hey Dr.Jackie why would you hire all of Balabans employees and now have all those people on your payroll why not just finish the treatments of these poor kids who now are stuck until people can come up with $$ which is not so easy as it is something we all thought was paid in full...if you have that much extra money laying around do the right thing !!!!!

Hi everyone,
Someone responded with the following useful information that I think we should all take action on:
Call # 1-800-442-8106
"AT THE RECORDING PRESS 2 FOR DENTISTS COMPLAINTS AND WAIT TO SPEAK WITH SOMEONE..."
If enough of us do this, maybe a comprehensive investigation can begin. We can't let Dr.Balaban and Dr.Fulop get away with this dastardly scheme. The authorities need to be notified in large numbers for there to be an impact.

When I contacted the Suffolk DA's office I was referred to the NY State Attorney General's Office in Hauppauge. I have started the process on Thursday, April 15. They told me an advocate will be in touch within 10 days. I will post further as I hear from them. This is not over by any stretch.

Both of my daughters were one of Stuart Balaban's first patients in the mid 1970's. Now they brought their children to him and he did such a despicable thing. May his parent's turn over in their graves and his children and grandchildren be embarrassed by this shameful act.
This "Dr. Jackie" has all of his patient's records. Are reputation and practice will be down the tubes if she does not release records immediately at "no charge" to the families involved. The patient's records belong to them according to law.

Balaban is a scam artist. I agree that he should be charged with criminal charges. It is an outrage that he should get away with this. As for Dr. Jackie, she got into a bad business deal and wants us to pay for it. I would like to see the contracts and what she agreed to and what kind of deal she made. I think there is power in numbers and we should stick together and see what we can do about this.
Does anybody know a good orthodontist??????
I would shop around there are a lot of honest and good Orthodontist out there. Don't let them fool you!

do what you need to do at the DA's office against Dr. Balaban, but please understand that Dr. Jackie is not involved in any sort of fraudulent activity. She did not BUY his practice! There was nothing to BUY! She is simply offering his patients a practice to continue their treatment. It really stinks that you have to pay more money, I understand, but you will have to pay more money at ANY orthodontic practice that you go to, no one will continue treatment for free. If you don't want to continue your treatment with her, fine, it's your choice to go somewhere else, but to defame her name for the sake of your anger is not the right way to handle the situation.
Don't believe everything you read shop around Dr Jackie is no Angel. There are plenty of other honest Orthodontist out there. Don't be fooled!!!!!!

I am not calling Dr. Jackie a scam artist. All I am saying is that Balaban says one thing about selling his practice to her and she says the exact opposite. Therefore, as simple logic will tell you, one of them has to be lying. If you think along the "follow the money" logic, the answer should be self-evident.

It fell apart with Balaban doing work behind her back and costing her more than she could bare. She put him on probation castigated him in front of the entire office. He is no innocent here he took payments in full and squandered the monies, but she knew this going into the deal and came up with this plan to get his services, patients etc... Only when she saw him for what he was or lost her cool decided to bilk all the Balaban patients and just thinks everything will fall on Balaban. She is just as culpable if not more so.

Hopefully Adventureland will cooperate with us all
I really think Dr Jackie was wrong in this to allow him to work out of her office ....I would be willing to bet that by Balaban filing bankrupcy gets her out of treating his patients like his letters stated and this way she makes more money.
It will be hard to prove but the more people that come forward the better . We were at Dr.Jackies office right before the bankrupcy letter was sent out and Balaban was still taking on new patients .
There is much more to this and it will come out .

complain to yes but that will do nothing but just have your complaint on file ...you must complain to the 800 # given which is through the Health dept of NYS they also take on proving he/she did something wrong/illegal/fraudelent etc...
the $$ taken for retainers and other things up front is a major crime if that $$ was not used for that exact reason . I have my invoice from Balaban saying what he charged my card for ...
