The office and staff keep getting worse! They make changes without notifying the parents such as closing down the office you are supposed to have your appointment at or being closed for phone calls all day when you were told to call back to check the status of your child's referral! When you finally do get ahold of someone they are rude or place you on hold forever. When you are there for an appointment people who have appointments after you get called back first and after two hours of waiting i
