  •  I haven't seen a doc (0+ / 0-)

    since I was on Medicaid for a brief stint in the early 90's due to economics and it wasn't necessarily pleasant.  I had to listen to one asshat scold me because a previous doc was holding all my kids' records hostage for lack of payment.

    I was a POS because I didn't have money to pay the exorbiant doc bills and deserved a verbal beatdown in front of my child.

    I also once enjoyed a scathing lecture, while prone in a dentist chair from a dentist who had to pull my infected wisdom tooth about how Medicaid only paid 1/3 of his costs.  He had me so upset that I had to leave and reschedule for another day, even though I was in horrendous pain.

    Sorry docs, you'll have to do more than poll positive to win back my trust.

    •  that's awful (0+ / 0-)

      i've been to the local [nearly] free clinic here in the past and had one doc that was sorta snotty but not anywhere near that bad. most of the clinic staff, doctors, nurses, receptionists, have been pretty good.
