Patient Comments (1)
in Duluth, GA |
I tried to make an appointment. I was on hold over a two hour period and caught in an on hold message prison that continued to say that my call would be answered soon. Instead, the phone would ring like someone would answer it but it would go to the on hold message again. At 4:20 pm, someone picked up and I spoke with them and they asked me to give them a minute and they put me in hold again. I stayed on hold until 4:30 and they auto disconnected my call at 4:30 when they closed!
