Lake Bluff, IL |
I called to make appt. for 4:30 and on or a Saturday. I was told that I would get a call back within 24-48 hours. I was called 1 week later and I on a number that I did not leave. The lady that left a message said they had available on Friday at 2:30! I asked for 4:30 or Saturday. I called again and was told that someone would call me in 24 to 48 hours.. I requested that I get a call back with in 24 hours..no such luck! Scheduling an appointment should not be this hard, UNACCEPTABLE!
