Good doctor, if you can put up with the front staff

Good doctor, but front staff is rude. The lady that was supposed to help me just sat and stared off into space as she was calling someone about tickets. When I walked out, she was still on the phone...everyone else was doing the work for her. Another lady (older) in front was rude saying I may be too late to get in (only 10 minutes late, and there was a snowstorm, for crying out loud!).
