Bad times – Came to this office two or three times, with office staff and hygienist ranging from cold to aggressively rude.
On my last visit, I was having trouble finding the office. I called ten minutes prior to my appt and received some poor directions, but got a little closer. At 2 minutes to my appt time, I called again, told the receptionist exactly where I was standing, could she please tell me which corner I should be heading towards. She had no idea where I was, though it turned out to be exactly across the street from the office door. Fine enough, so she's bad with directions, but she was really rude about it. Said I should have looked it up ahead of time and if I was going to be running so late, we'd just have to reschedule.
I walked in about 2 minutes late, according to my cell phone clock. Their wall clock was set 20 minutes fast. Receptionist continued to argue with me about rescheduling.
Hygienist came out about then and grudgingly said she'd take me anyway. She checked my blood pressure, which was through the roof what with the running and arguing. Curious to see what she'd say about it when asked (since she didn't seem phased [btw, I'm a nurse]) she told me it was fine (it was like 164/100). Hm.
She proceeded to rush through my cleaning, talking the whole time (with hands in my mouth, so defending myself was out of the question) about time management, planning ahead, the miracle of google maps, etc. Doc came by for his usual 30 seconds of "everything looks great!" Also with hands in mouth so talking was impossible. By then I was so mad I wouldn't have known where to start anyway.
I think I just started at her when the receptionist asked if I'd like to schedule my next appt.
So that was the "aggressively rude" visit. The better ones were at least professional, if not friendly and fun.
