Re: Monday's Dealings canceled by me
I had an ESI scheduled at one pt as well but was having trouble finding a ride at the last minute. It 'occurred' to me to ask how much it would cost - for some reason I thought it would be 2-$300 before my insurance (!). Turns out I was missing a zero there. I have a huge deductible, so I would have had to pay for all of it out of pocket. I told my PM [who does the injections] I had been excited, but that I couldn't afford it on my insurance. She spends most of her time doing injections, so I am a little concerned that I could get bounced on a technicality or something that wouldn't otherwise cause a problem. I am certainly not a cash cow for my doc., and the way she's arranged her practice makes me nervous [very very little time spent w/ patients].
I'm sorry you were treated so unprofessionally - I wouldn't have gone either - They would have lost my confidence. The best thing might be to tell your PM you had to know what the co-pay would be - I don't think this is unreasonable! I might avoid saying anything about the lack of professionalism if your dr. referred you. tho.
