Terrible, disrespectful, mean staff!

The doctors here are good but the staff is terrible! The staff, both on the phone and in person are rude, mean, discourteous and disrespectful. They are need of some real counseling. Even though the doctors seem good, the staff was so bad, I stopped going to these doctors!
