The rudest office staff that I have ever encountered. The girl at desk told her colleague" I don't care because I dont get paid to care"

One star is too many. This place obviously doesn't care about their patients health. Couldn't make an appointment, tried to reschedule at least 6 hours in advance now he wont ever see me again because of same day cancellation. So my Dr. tries to get Dr. Katz to see me and HE WONT TAKE ME EITHER!!! All because I had to reschedule due to unforeseen circumstances. If I had no showed I'd get it. But this was HOURS in advance. DON'T GO HERE THEY COULD CARE LESS ABOUT YOU OR YOUR HEALTH.

Condescending guy; only comment about my arthritis was: You think YOU'VE got it bad. I have a guy who can't do this with his hand. Did not offer any treatment. When looking over my health history, he commented: I notice you marked NO on whether you ever had (Whatever it was called - I've never heard of it). Do you even know what this is? Then, why did you mark No?

I am a former patient. I tried to make an appointment recently. The office staff was so rude that I have decided to change to another practice. How I was treated over the phone was unacceptable.
