sabrina ren, December 2018
Terrible experience with the call center to make reservation for x-ray.
Press 3 for English. But then 2 guys say they don’t understand what is x-ray and hang up even I asked them not to hang up to wait for me to get the doctor to talk to them. The other lady pick up and says she don’t speak English and put me on hold forever.
This is super confusing. How can someone work in a hospital and don’t understand what is X-ray
