> I'm in a bind. I have a long-term relationship with my doc - about 4 years, I think. I'm very responsible and feel "bonded" with him. However, I'm aware that this is a business relationship when it comes right down to it. And I really feel frustrated with how rigid he is. It seems out of line. In this case, I missed an appt. last week because my car wouldn't start and I couldn't get help in time to get to the appt. He rescheduled for a couple of days later - which I appreciated. I had a feeling he would charge me for two appts. So I asked him how much to write the check for at the end of resched. appt and he said "2 sessions" - $420. ouch...

Whoa! No insurance? No way would I pay my p-doc $420! I absolutely adore him, think he's good as gold, I'd cry if I ever had to give him up, but no way would I pay him $420! I'd be out there pounding the pavement looking for a new p-doc. Can you tell him how you feel w/o wasting your whole appt. justifying your thoughts. Maybe send him a letter? Does he have a really busy practice? Can he afford to lose you? Would he care one way or the other if you found someone new?

If you were just forgetful, and it happened numerous times, then okay, I can see that, but twice in 4 years? Forget it! Not worth it!
