Perris, CA |
Has the rudest staff ever! I paid my $35 dollar deductible on 2/13/17 and I'm on my way to the bank to get a print out to prove it so they will stop harassment and billing. Had another appointment with them and they demanded a $265 co- payment I told them my co-payment was $35.00 and she said insurance said $200 and another $65.00 I said no that's not write I paid that she said to prove it. Then she said your wright you just pay us $96.00 and we are good. Would not trust them at all.

I tried to set an appointment 4 times and the 4 times I was put on hold when it was my turn The receptionist hangup on me. I tried to explain to her that I already been on hold for 46 minutes she said you have to wait for your turn. Totally rude and unprofessional. I wish I would it met Dr. Kim as he is probably a very good Doctor. Eric
