I have had excellent medical staff take care of me. HOWEVER, the administrative staff and administration, starting with Mario Jardon, the CEO, down to "Lourdes" from the billing dept., do not care at all about the patient's well-being. Formal letters get ignored, rudeness on the phone, and no help at all.
