<<Very good points. In all honesty, when we asked the doctor's office for more justification on what services they provided, our intention was not to try and skip on paying the bill. There was no previous record anywhere of this doctor providing a service, and then out of nowhere a bill arrived in the mail. All we wanted was proof and they were unable/unwilling to provide that. >>


I had good fun turning the tables on a doctor one time.


I got a call from a woman asking for service on her furnace. I made arrangements to come right out to make repairs, and she agreed to my fee of "$85 for an hour or less."


When I got to the address, no one was there and I left my bill for the $95.

The next day I got a call from the woman, who said she was a doctor and that she jad been called in unexpectedly to the hospital. She wanted me to waive the bill and come back out to make repairs on her furnace.

I refused to do either. If she wasn't able to keep the appointment she made --- fine. but she owed me for my time. She refused to pay and I refused to go out AGAIN to make repairs.

With any luck she froze her tush off for a few extra days until she found someone to make repairs when she happened to be home.
