Chico, CA |
The physicians in this group are fine but the office staff is horrendous. Don't know why I'm surprised as it's an Enloe-run facility. Never seen such a bunch of rude, unhelpful and incompetent front office staff. I would never tolerate this level of incompetence or rudeness in my business. Also, who takes 2 1/2 hours for lunch without answering phones??? Good luck trying to get a hold of a live person at this office. Apparently they only answer phones between 9:30-11:30 and 2:15-4:45.
