Dr. Scott Manning performed a sub-par lingual frenotomy or “tongue-tie” procedure on our 1 month old baby.
Our appointment was only to discuss options due to some potential issues. Dr. Manning was extremely rushed, arrogant, and pushy.
Also turns out he is not knowledgeable about more current techniques or options, did not explain the procedure thoroughly, was dismissive of doing tongue exercises afterwards, and didn’t bother to give us a private minute to discuss having the procedure done given we were not scheduled to do one.
We left feeling bowled over and shell shocked. And we ended up having to get the frenotomy done a second time, but this time with a highly recommended specialist at another clinic. It was night and day experience.
Our baby had been in the NICU so we were accustomed to going along with doctors.
Learn from our mistake and do not let Dr. Manning perform any procedures on your child! I will not let any doctor at Children’s Hospital do any procedure/surgery after our experience there, unless last resort.
I highly recommend you seek out a frenotomy specialist, and do your own research about anterior and posterior so you can be informed and know what questions to ask.
I would have but wasn’t expecting to have any procedure done that day.
Also BE AWARE, the Children’s Hospital bill was MUCH HIGHER than the bill from the specialist who had to re-do the frenotomy to correct it.
I contacted Children’s Patient and Family Relations team and asked them to reduce our bill by the amount of having to repay for it to be redone.
They would not. I’m warning everyone I know.
