in Aurora, CO |
The worst front desk staff member I have ever delt with. She made my appt. and answered my questions over the phone. When I went to the office she was short and rude......she spent several minutes texting on her phone. Come I find out she lied about insurance coverage and told me "oh well if you cant pay your bill you can go to collections." When I asked to speak to a office manager she claimed she was the manager. I will be looking into filing a official complaint on this office.

Not a good listener and not great if you have non-standard/more complex endocrine issues.
