Patient Comments (1)
I’ve been hung up on twice. The girl that answers the phone is borderline rude. I called on a Wednesday to have an order sent to the hospital to have blood work done to comply with what they told me to do and when I went to the hospital on Monday to have my blood work done they had no order I had to wait at the hospital and after three phone calls to the office finally three hours later I got an order .Im dealing with a life and death situation and they could careless.
