Absolutely Terrible & unprofessional. I was referred to this office & needed an appt ASAP as per doc.I was given mis-information, complete run around, even spoke to the office manager who was rude & not helpful.I had my primary care doctor speak to them directly when He sent the referral over to get the info they needed. Call to schedule they tell me they don't have the info they need What?u just talked to the doc. a week later I call to Schedule now tell me they don't even take my insurance!
