West Greenwich, RI |
Dr spelling was knowlegable but the office billing is horrible. They requestwd paument up front then never contact me that my account was over paid. they were rude and stated they could hold my Payment for 30 days which is what they did. Meanwhile I owed the money to the doctor and got bills from his office. The worst is to miss manage other people's money
