Tamara Mendez was friendly and professional. One of the receptionist (younger one of the two) does not know what she is doing. I filled out my information online prior to the appointment but it did not matter because receptionist did noteven bother looking at it and asked me about insurance information.

I dont think she knew what she was talking about. I had to finish her sentences and gave no instructions or explained the prescription she gave me.
