  • It depends. Not always. My Dad was an OB and often took payment in the form of pottery or different things. Dad used to bill after the visit but nowadays they make you give payment when you walk in the door. I believe there are docs that care and others that run through as many people that they can a day, giving out scrips.

  • Some do and some don't. In either case they sure aren't all the same.

  • Well, they would like to get paid for the job they are doing. If a doctor is in a private practice, they need the money and sometimes insurance companies don't pay them. A lot of doctors see many patients and need to diagonose quickly. Always have a list out of questions you want to ask your doctor, it would make the time go in a productive manner.
