I was number 2 in line. The receptionist who checked me in helped the person in front of me and then took two telephone calls. Whenever I call in I am often put on hold. I felt calls the receptionist should have helped me first as I was standing there. All she had to do was take my co-pay gave me a receipt and I could go sit down. She took a phone call and then took another phone call. Was she having a bad and took it out on me???
