Can't get verified via postal mail

I am a dentist with 2 offices in AZ. I have tried for over a month to get verified so I can implement an ad campaign in Google, but Google won't verify me and 

insists the postcards have been sent BUT I RECEIVED NEITHER!


Dr JC Goodwin, DMD


Sleep Matters

10134 North Oracle Road #170,

Oro Valley, AZ, US



Goodwin Dental Fitness Center

3192 North Windsong Drive,

Prescott Valley, AZ



 Also, wrong info like an address in Prescott and a phone number that ends with 9444 comes up at the top of a search for me.

Can that be removed?

I get even two listings with the 9444 at the end of the phone:


See my linked screenshot:


Regarding the "JC Goodwin Dental Fitness Center" at "3192 N Windsong Dr, Prescott Valley, AZ 86314":


Have you tried just claiming this  through "Own this business?" and then changing its phone number?


Same should be possible for the other one "A Dental Fitness Center: Goodwin J C DDS"

Thank you. My frustration stems from the fact that they are such a
self-made authority and are allowed to wield such power without any
oversight or accountability and while questioning the validity of my 2
dental offices in AZ may be OK, the probability that they actually sent
these cards to the requested addresses and the USPS misdelivered them is
relatively low. Without verification none of my ads can show and no adwords
or real analytics...never thought I'd say this but thank goodness for

So I already did the "Claim my business" thing a month ago or more for both
of my physical locations. Many hours of absolutely wasted time later, I am
going through even more issues with this topic.
