Incompetent Office Staff

The Dr. is pretty competent and thorough . His office staff on the other hand is completely incompetent. He has a host of unprofessional, uneducated personnel who are either unable or unwilling to answer questions or provide assistance. I find myself constantly at a loss for words with unbelievable responses to average medical questions
