child is insured and still treated like a bum

Receptionist is high strung, makes inappropiate comments "I know, I have an ex-husband too"... even though insured, she demanded copies of entire policy, court papers, asked twice for social security #"s...the good Dr. told me he couldn't help it that our insurance is confusing....Huh? WALKED OUT, WOULD NOT LET HIM TOUCH MY CHILD....
