Customer Service Training Needed

Sherryl's customer service and professionalism is the worst I've seen in ANY health care office ever. She calls and harasses my wife over a $116 dollar bill from 2009 then hangs up on here and will not answer her phone calls. I then call an hour later to speak with her myself. She answers the phone and I tell here who I am and before I can get a word in instantly says "I don't want to argue with you, your account is closed and paid". I asked her why would she call and harass my wife then and she said again, "I don't want to argue with you" and hung up on me. WOW!!!, Why would Dr.Hood allow her to work there and represent his clinic is beyond me. This clinic won't be around too much longer, go elsewhere and Sherryl sweet sweet Sherryl, go get some customer service training because you are the definition of horrible customer service.

Full Review Rating Breakdown
One Star

Dr. Hood did not provide sufficient Lidocaine for any of the procedures that I had done. Even when I told him I could feel everything he was doing, his standard reply always was "I'm almost done", and he never was almost done. He would start the smallest procedures first, and by the time what little trace amount of Lidocaine I received began to wear off, then he did the big procedure of removing teeth, or doing fillings. He continued to work, knowing what pain I was in. It was excruciating feeling the pain. He never answered any questions, my jaw still is in pain from a procedure done a while back.
