    When I go to the doctors I expect to be received with respect and patience. Raising her voice at patients, the front desk person showed little or no respect. DR ricks sent me to the wrong place for an evaluation twice. After calling the office and requesting information the receptionist once again showed no respect or restraint and blamed me, the patient, and refused to help. I asked to speak to a supervisor, she claimed to be one, so I told her that she should have better customer service skill
