“They were very knowledgeable. ”
“She was a sweetheart. ”
“I've never experienced a more unprofessional healthcare clinic. Upon making my appointment, I was instructed to be there at 1:00pm for my 1:15pm appointment. No problem, I arrived at 12:55pm to find the office door locked. I assumed the staff were on their lunch break, and thought they'd come back at 1:00pm to unlock the door. I guess the staff had a longer lunch break than normal, since the door was not unlocked until 1:06pm. Granted I only had to wait an additional 6 minutes, but I've never encountered lateness in other medical clinics. Another patient was also waiting in the hallway for them to open the door. During check in, the receptionist chatted with her coworker for 99% of the time while I was standing at the check in desk. Never experienced such rudeness at other clinics. Their conversation certainly didn't appear to be about an office emergency or any important matter, they appeared to be chatting about their personal lives. The audiologist seemed competent and was very friendly with my son, however during the testing the door was left open and I heard a cell phone ringing and ringing. Again, never experienced this in other medical offices. Later she explained that it was her cell phone, and she checked it to see if there was a problem with her child's daycare. I can understand a working parent checking her phone, but could she not just turn her phone on vibrate and check her phone after her clients have left? Most of my doctors have children and somehow they manage to keep their cell phones from disturbing their patients. I will never go to this office again. Even if their ENT doctors are the best on the planet, I have no desire to deal with the unprofessional receptionist. I felt like I was interrupting their chat and cell phone time. Never seen anything like this, and hope to never see again!”
