Patient Comments (1)
South Lyon, MI |
Staff is not courteous and are too busy patrolling their parking lot and yelling outside at moms dropping off their children at school on the first day. Very unprofessional.
We are more than happy to allow parking in our lot after business hours. There are 2 busy practices operating in this building with very few spots and we need to keep them available for our clients, especially our elderly ones. I assure you if you ever became a client you would have an excellent experience!
