Little Rock, AR |
If you have insurance that they have not contracted with, they will not accept self pay. Even if you offer several thousand dollars as a retainer to prove you are able to pay for tests and procedures.
Hot Springs National Park, AR |
Incompetent, unprofessional and rude staff. I waited 2 MONTHS to get my daughter in, and they called 1 HOUR before our appt, saying they wouldn't accept our insurance. I was already on the road driving from Hot Springs at this time. When I arrived and was obviously upset at the situation, they didn't care in the least and wouldn't even take responsibility, saying it was my fault because they'd "been trying to reach me for some time" which was a blatant LIE. I received no contact from them before
Waited for one hour and twenty minutes past my appointment time. Unfortunately, there are not many options in this field. My child was not very comfortable in the office environment. Their opinion is "it was run-down, cheap, uncomfortable, looked like they could pack up and leave in the night."
Clifton, CO |
Terrible staff, rude receptionist, nothing but a money hungry office that needs to learn how to speak to people with respect! I've never been treated so poorly....they call themselves professionals but they are anything BUT professional.
