too fixated on $50.00 no show or 15 min. late additional fees

It worried me that became the major first topic, although I said I thought was just way to greety. I said I would go $25.00, but that was it for a penalty. She said NO she wanted $50.00, so I left. I she would have said that if she was 15 minutes late she would pay me the fifty, then i would have gone with the plan..

Doctor's Response

After checking in and reading the 'Office Policies and Procedures', she complained about the office's $50 No Show fee. I explained to her that was the policy of the practice, not mine, and I was not in a position to negotiate that with her.

Dr Atienza is amazing. She listens and is thoughtful. She tries many modifications and doesn't just push meds. She wanted me to be an active participant in my care. Love her!
