Patient Comments (3)
Pomona, CA |
I was treated very rudely by your receptionist. I had called and made the appointment about a month ago. She told me I was late when I was ten minutes early. She practically threw the clipboard at me. Very bad attitude not patient friendly and when I handed her my insurance card she snarled and said you are Tier 2. I had called prior to making the appointment to verify Tier 1 vs Tier 2 coverage. Needless to say I would think in this job market you could find someone much more qualified.
