From having a sleep study ordered and having no explanation about what I needed to do between scheduling and authorization, just a terrible experience. Front office Staff was rude and unhelpful. Orders were not put in and they kept telling me I needed to get authorization which I didn't. This place is terribly unorganized and a nightmare to get things done in a timely manner
