Billing Sucks !! Could not put all on the last experience with this office ! So to Continue. I paid the bill (total amount) at the so called Billing Paid online. Got a transaction approved code. Heck that don't matter because after a week the bill is still not processed on their side (even though It came out of my account) I am done using this so called office !!!!!! What a joke !!! Find someone else to use ! Oh and you ask for a manger they never give you one well Paula is the so called MGR.

Corrupt billing! Double billed numerous times. I spent over an hour attempting to get through and no one answered phone and the email associated with billing statement bounced back.
