    Melville, NY |
    Their office manager Lisa has the worst attitude!! I tried to ask her a couple of questions and she hung up on me! How rude! After I called her back, I asked her why she hung up on me and she goes "I was on the phone with the insurance company, I told you to call back". There was no "please" or "thank you". Who treats their patients like this?? She also said to me "I am firing you as our patient, do not come here again." I mean who says that??? I would not recommend this office to anyone!!!!!!!!
