Horrible customer service has been for quite some time. I had a appointment at 1:15 once I got there I waited at the desk for 10-15mins and I didn't get seen until 2hrs later after my original time I was suppose to be here I'll rather go to the hospital if I have any more problems with my health. It needs to get better I just don't understand how a place of business with people can run like this for so long

This is the worst company I've ever dealt with. They just need to shut down completely. Everytime I call to make an appointment they either never answer the phone or hang up on me. And when I actually do make an appointment I sit in there for 2 or 3 hours. It's ridiculous

They have a receptionist to route calls but it doesn't matter which department she sends you too. No one answers the phone, any day of the week or any time of day. If you need to make an appointment you have to drive down there. Don't expect ANYONE to EVER return a message. I have been calling every day for 2 weeks and leaving a message. At this point I am still calling just to see if they will ever return the call.

The Tuscaloosa WIC Department is the most unprofessional establishment I have ever visited. They NEVER answer the phone and no matter how many messages you leave, they will not return your phone calls. You have to drive all the way to the office to schedule or reschedule an appointment.
