If office hours are until 5:00 p.m., then I shouldn't get an after-hours voice mail system when I call - even if it is 4:55 p.m.

The girls in the office are a bunch of liars saying they sent my information to Advanced Sleep Medicine several times which they never did. I called the office several times and they kept on lying to me. I would never go back to that office and I told my Family Doctor what happened and I hope she does not send any patients to that office and have them suffer the same fate I did. I went to another Pulmonologist and everything was taken care of quickly and in a very professional manner. One star for the doctor, the girls in the office should be fired.
