Actually, no! First, he was an ass! Second, he did not treat the problem. He checked me out, diagnosed the problem, charged me $300, and prescribed me two medications in a misdiagnosis. I had to go to another doctor, who quickly saw what the real problem was, charged me $100, prescribed me one generic medication, and I was better in two days after being sick for nearly two weeks.

Also, Chris, my wife has lived a life that you have no background on. She has had numerous surgeries since her teenage years due to a genetic disease. She is on plenty of medications, sees doctors regularly and has three unpaid bills around $200 from about six years ago, when she was still a teenager in high school. Not bad!!! In addition, her father was laid-off at that time while her mom was at home taking care of her.

We are clearly aware of our responsibilities. Neither of us would let a mark like that on our credit again. Neither of us have credit card debt. We are doing better than just about any couple I know in this regard, whom have no medical complications whatsoever.

I wanted some simple advice, and I thank rah1420 for it! Thank you!
