Good Doctor - But Not Worth the Headache of Dealing with her Front Desk Staff

Dr. Polam... Is very courteous and very polite... However, the two staff members at the front desk are awful. Neither of the two appear to have, at minimum, a high school diploma, but will (without hesitation) give incorrect medical advise, tell you what the doctor will and will not do, refuse patients request. I'm not sure if Dr. Polam is scared of the two awful emaployees or just unaware of their unfair, unkind treatment of her patients. Either way I have to find a new doctor.
