Florida dentist sues patients over negative online reviews

Peter Habashy, DDS, a dentist in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., is suing two patients after they posted negative reviews of his practice online, according to a Sept. 16 report by bocanewsnow.com.

Dr. Habashy's attorney claims that the reviews are inaccurate and were made with malice and intent to harm Dr. Habashy's business and profession. 

The complaints were about a $99 cleaning service advertised on the practice's website — the review said the $99 cleaning, once performed, was called a "superficial cleaning" by the office and the practice offered the patient a deep cleaning for an extra $500.

The two patients being sued allegedly posted negative reviews on several websites, the report said.
