Santee, CA |
Doctor Cheng is decent but the office is just horrible.
Lebec, CA |
The Office Staff is about the worst I have ever experienced. 1. Constantly being placed on hold for 20 min or more.... 2. After holding the line disconnects ...as if someone picked up the phone and then hung it right back up. 3. After three days of calling, being placed on hold, or being hung up or the line was busy, I finally got through on Monday morning, to be told they "don't make 'new patient' appointments on Mondays"... uh say what?
