This patient had no complaints for over a year...when he called for appointment, he was given appointment the same week, but told he would be required to pay his outstanding balance, over a year old prior to being treated It is unfortunate, but healthcare is changing and as much as we would like to just care for patients...we must be paid to keep our doors open to care for others.
