What People Say About Dr. James Phillips, DDS
Front desk staff is one of the rudest staff i have ever talked to. They were even rude over the phone and accuse you of stuff you didnt do. If the front desk staff cannot deliver great customer service then I wouldn't want to see the doctor. I wont be back!
