Call another dentist: First, there must be more than one dentist in bowling green, give another office a call. Second, you can pay for treatment yourself if you have no insurance. Many dental offices are willing to work out long term payment plans with patients. Third, the emergency room is not qualified to offer definitive dental care. They might be able to give you medication for short term relief, but that is all. ...Read more

Just got denial eob from insurance. Pcp's partner charged $45 for phone call for cyst on wrist. I am livid. What can I do?

Discuss: You can try discussing the charge with the physician to see if they can reduce, eliminate, or spread out the charge. When you signed the documents with your doctor on your first or recent visit, it must have said that they will charge for phone calls. The other option is to appeal the denial with the insurance company. Good luck. ...Read more

Wrong forum: This sounds like a conversation you need to have with the doctors office. Stay cool calm and collected. Resolving conflicts involves focusing on ways to solve the problem to everyones satisfaction. Listen and take the others party's perspective into account. Write down all of your grievances and think about them carefully before attacking the gyn. ...Read more
