My new OB's office asked me to bring in a check for my portion of L&D costs to my first appointment tomorrow. I'm taking serious issue with this, as
1) i have never met or even spoken with this doctor before - I'd at least like to see what she's like before I commit to using her (or her practice)
2) i have never had a doctor ask me to pay up front for a procedure prior it occurring - and (once again, considering I have yet to meet the doctor) this struck me as odd.
have you guys ever had to pay up front for a procedure? I can see this would be the norm for something like cosmetic surgery, and probably wouldn't take issue with it if this was my regular doctor - but if they push the issue, I may be back to square 1.
