The staff member who remind me of my appointment was very unprofessional. I was unaware of my health insurance being canceled. The staff member said in quote “ you don’t have no insurance and I’m going to cancel your appointment for Dr Bell”. The staff member didn’t give me the option if I wanted to pay for the service or to find out what was the issue of my insurance. I had to match her attitude and told her not to cancel and I’ll follow up with my insurance before my appointment. I love my doctor Bell… but this was not the first time I encountered a rude and unprofessional staff member on the phone from this office. Please have this addressed to all staff who works on the front desk and phone service. Thank you. – Cecilia R. – 06/05/2021
