    I Had The Best Experience With Karen @ The Gary Ind SSI Office from The Start She Was Very Pleasant And Very Professional And She Answered All My Questions.

    Ms pate rudely answered the next operator extension. When I said I didn't understand the information she provided, I stated im confused. She then rudely said well what are you confused about. She also refused to give me my sons case worker information when I asked for and insisted she helped me. When I refused and requested another person because of her poor attitudes, she said have a good day and hung up. I felt bullied when she also said well what are you confused about. It's sad. Just because you work for a government building in gary doesn't give u the right to talk to people with such disregard and disrespect. That call was not courteous nor respectful

    Usually I go to the office in person and have no problems, I recently had a baby so I had to contact the office by phone. I spoke with someone named Ms. Jackson who was extremely rude and tried to talk over me the whole time and hung up in my face after I asked to speak with someone else. She needs some serious customer service training

    Went on Nov 12, 2015 the office was very crowded probably because the day prior was a holiday..the office staff was very quick and efficient. The lady that I had was very helpful she even waited while I phoned the doctors office to get their fax number..I was very pleased at the pleasant manner and outstanding service I recieved.Thank you Lake St. office, keep up the good work!!!!!!
