I am surprised and very sorry to hear this, and ask that you consider calling my office and letting me know your name so I can look into your case closely.

Rudeness from any of our office staff, whether real or perceived, is unacceptable. You can be sure that we have addressed this issue, and we will continue to address it if it remains a problem. D. Jaffe
