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...more
