Excellent Ophthalmologist, So-So Staff

although support staff in many medical facilities are overworked & underpaid, dr. obstbaum's people seem particularly unapproachable, both on the telephone & in person. if i only had to deal with dr. obstbaum, he would receive 5 stars, but factoring in his staff's behavior makes that unlikely.
