all susie and cathy had to do was remove the braces and advise us to go elsewhere, they instead worried about themselves and balaban. not at all thinking or the children they were in the process of treating. these ladies worked on children for years in the past, what about some compassion for the ones now, with no $ to go forward? or messed up teeth? or pre teens that now have their braces on since 10 because they were so messed up? my daughter has now had braces on for 3 years because we had to go backwards. hi ladies... i hope somehow you read this and i hope this keeps you up at night. i hope someday you all get what you deserve too. susie, hows that college aged daugher? want to call me now???

Susie and Cathy,
Months have gone by. Not one word from you trying to contact me. After all the years you knew me growing up, and helped treat me and my sister with our own braces back in the 70's and 80's wihile under Dr B care ....I can not believe you didnt contact me while this was all going down. While Dr B was in the stages of now treating my own children, I am still waiting to see if you turn out to be the descent ladies that I had always thought you were. I brought my own children back to him for his care and also because of you, you had a style and way to comfort the children. I guess it was all an act. You did what was best for you and your careers. You left with out looking back. As far as I am concerned you turned out to be cowards and should not be allowed to treat ppl, you have no compassion for what is right or wrong. Months have gone by and I am still shocked that you could go to sleep at night peacfully knowing that you allowed this to go on and didnt warn me. Iwas taken by Dr B and hurt by you both too.
Not much more I can say......
Jackie is no doctor. She is heartless. While treating my child 5 yrs ago, Jackie (and some of her assistants during the course of my child's treatment) fractured 8 of her top row of teeth. She has had ongoing painful repair work, nerve pain and now requires veneers which will need to be replaced (? times). I sued Jackie and settled out of court upon the recommendation of the judge.

Unfortunately, when we went to Jackie years ago, I had no idea that she was not Board Certified and that most of her assistants did not have licenses to practice dental work in New York State which is a requirement. Jackie allowed her assistants to do orthodontic work on my (and other children's teeth) without her supervision routinely. These girls not only were not allowed by NYS to do orthodontic work, but were not allowed to even assist without a license. One of her assists that worked on my child's teeth most of the time was Liz Madden. I tried contacting her during the lawsuit so that she could tell of what Jackie (I cannot call her Dr.) put her up to doing in the office, and she never came forward. What a shame. When we see that someone is hurting someone else, we are morally obligated and it is our duty as human beings to stop it, or help in some way. Many on Jackie's staff who knew/know what she was doing for years (but not all, I must say as there was one angel with integrity and courage that I was honored to get to know, in the crowd of demons) has stood on the victimizer's side instead of protecting innocent children. Shame on them! And for what? How much could they have been paid to sell their souls? Whoever covered up and continues to cover up Jacqueline Fulop-Goodling's sins is going to have to give an account to their maker. I hope it was worth it.

On a more positive note...
Thank God for Dr. Harry Tsotsos of Wantagh, NY and all his excellent staff of assistants (and later on new doc. Dr. Douglas Palaganas). I cannot tell of all the wonderful things Dr. Harry has done in this forum, but will summarize: Dr. Harry not only took my daughter's braces off, re-treated and bonded her teeth over and over, but made himself and his staff available to her through her very emotionally difficult teenage years (having to deal with broken teeth, waking up night after night with nightmares about her teeth breaking and falling out and not being able to eat favorite foods anymore) until today. I have never met a more caring group of angels, from the doctors to the receptionists! Dr. Harry’s office's first priority are the children's wellbeing, he loves the kids and is not in the business because he loves $$$. God bless all of them. I wish I could repay all their kindness, but I won't ever be able to so I will leave that up to God.

I wish you all the very best and may you get justice. I only hope that our story helps someone and that our pain will not be in vain.

I find it unreal that all of these stories from so many different people and nothing has been done!!
How can they still have thier licenses ?? I really do not understand how things are handled!
Basically it is OK to steal peoples $$ and say you are getting them something (retainers ) the charge went through and lovely Dr. B POCKETED that $$ but that ok !
Stealing patients records ok too!
Leaving patients high and dry...OK too !
Having unlic assistants treat our kids !!! GO N.Y.
GO N.Y. goooooooooo!!!
My child was not a patient of Jackies so we were told ......then why the hell was her staff treating my child ???? My CHILD also had a broken tooth !
All these horror stories , all these lawsuits, and nothing!!
No one cares....not the DA, ADA , Ortho Assoc, Aligntech.....no one as long as they get more $$$ they can continue to hurt more and more people !
What a great society!
There should of been pickets outside of that office day after day after day .....Lets all start a facebook page with all our horror stories for the world to see!!!!!!!!!!

Could anyone recommend an orthodontist? I still have the buttons on my teeth and need to get going on seeing a new doctor. When all of this went down, I just did not want to deal with it all (or pay once again). I am so hesitant now about finding a new dr. I thought I had the best out there with Balaban…

I do not know about copying the entire blog as it is 40 pgs long....but a Facebook page where people can post their stories and have it open for public view .
I do not understand how any judge can allow this to keep going on as it seems Jackie has been sued by numerous people!
What are they waiting for?

i have just started reconstructing my teeth in the back because of malocclusions from her 'invisalign' treatment....she is a heartless, lying, conniving schemer that doctored my records when i sued her. she changed the dates and the treatment and convinced the Judge that i had not gone back to see her after paying her $6K. She will get hers one of these days. what doesn't come out in the wash, comes out in the rinse.......the DOH should close her down...

This is amazing…..Everyone is posting comments about the greedy and sleazy actions of Dr. Balaban and Dr. Jacquie. Did this catch anyone’s attention or just mine? Now correct me if I am wrong, but it seems to me that another doctor from Melville has been posted on the Blog site, Dr. Michelle Kun. She seems to have someone helping her in soliciting all of you through this Blog to come to her and her “supposed husband’s” office. Talk about taking advantage of a misfortunate situation. I can guaranty they won’t be treating you for free. Maybe we should ask why, Dr. Kun, Dr. Aram Kirkorian and her staff (Dr. Edmond Demirdjan, Dr. Katherine Kim & Dr. Martin Boorin), feel the need to get involved in this situation. I would think it involves money. A post last night says she is working with the DA to sue Dr. Jacquie. For what? What business does she have getting involved in this situation? Again, must be the money. Hey, if she wishes to get involved with this, we all should start trashing her too. Let’s dig up some dirt. Maybe she was working with Dr. Balaban too. Getting patients to transfer to her and then split the money with Dr. Balaban. What do you think? Maybe it’s a grand scheme of all the doctors in the general area to help out Dr. Balaban get back on his feet after screwing over all of his patients. Maybe they are all sitting back having a big laugh over drinks and playing their Wednesday golf round at their country clubs? We really don’t know who was in cahoots with Dr. Balaban in this scheme and any doctor we see could be handing him money for treating us and thanking him for the patient. He is a Harvard Grad. He could have concocted this whole plan. Maybe we should investigate every doctor on Long Island because we don’t really know how deep the conspiracy goes?
if you need dirt on the sleaze ball Michelle Kun I could give you a ton... it's about time that neighbors know the morals and ethics or the lack thereof of this creature...

Stay away from Dr Jackie as your children's ortho...She did an awful job on my 2 children and so many of my friends children. We have discussed a class action suit about her..... She is incompetent and surrounds herself with people who do not know what they are doing!

Dr Kun worked with Dr Jackie for many years and they split over money issues. My daughter and my niece have extensive damage to their bites and jaw position thanks to Dr Jackie. She did not see these kids, she had unskilled laborers work on them at every visit. My child is now facing years of corrective braces (she is 18) and horrible jaw surgery.

Dr. Jackie said she would correct my childs teeth if I paid her another $4000

Most of all she took away their smiles and self esteem!

Read my prior statement about Dr. Harry Tsostos of Wantagh, NY.
He and his staff are the best!!! They removed old braces and repaired my daughter's fractured teeth.

I investigated Dr. Kun and she is innocent. You must be working for Dr. Jackie! I am one of the people that sued Dr. Jackie and I investigated everything related to her, including Dr. Kun. So I am deducing that you are one of Jackie's minions, trying to slander someone else to take the spotlight off of the villain here. Why don't you provide your name or real address? I can provide mine, because I had a court case against Jackie, but you probably can't because you would be liable for slander and you really are not from Romania.

Slander and defamation of character are serious offenses my dear, I know because I am a paralegal as well!

After reading all of these posts, I guess it's really up to a court of law to decide if she really is responsible for Dr. Balaban's actions. I will however, give a negative personal reference, as I grew up with her, in Seaford, NY. She was always a very greedy person. In high school, she used to buy those 5 packs of bubble gum for a dollar. Then she would sell the individual packs to the students for a dollar each. I'm all for American capitalism, but, after she sold you the pack, she used to ask the person who bought it, to give her a piece of gum. I swear this is true. Despicable.

I'm so sorry to hear what you guys have gone through. My son needs bracers and last Friday I took him to a Dr. Ballaban who currently operates in Forest Hills, NY. He was a charming an older gentleman who talked a LOT!!!! and he quoted me a price, however, I was not too comfortable with his plan of treatment so thought when I see him today,i would discuss the treatment plan. Also, over the weekend, something didnt feel right about Dr. Ballaban...so I decided to google him to see if there were any issues and I've landed here. My son has his first fitting with Ballaban this afternoon but i am now extremely hesitant as I'm not sure if you guys are referring to the same othodontist. Can someone describe him to me. when i met him I he introduced himself as Dr. Ballaban (no first name) so I'm not sure that we're talking about the same dr....someone please help...... thanks

And now she will charge you to fill the cavity from that gum. What a genius!

Stuart Balaban is a graduate of Harvard Dental School in the late 60s,(67 I think.) He has white hair. Ask him if he practiced in Melvlille. If he answers yes to both questions, run.

thanks for your response, I received confirmation after describing him to someone at a law firm that he was in fact the same Dr. Balaban. After reading all of the posts, and receiving confirmation, I decided to cancel my son's appt with Dr. Balaban. I have to say that he is unscrupulous as he has called me several times requesting my insurance information which also struck me as odd...as the admin staff usually handles these things....unbelievable!!!
