Elmira, NY |
Extremely frustrating in dealings with this office. They DO NOT return phone calls or let you know when there's an issue with anything. I personally tried reaching out 20 times leaving multiple messages. Talked to receptionist twice in which they tell me there was an issue but won't allow me to talk to someone who can explain the issue. I'm at wits end with this office and would not recommend for anybody
