i hurt my knee back in 2019 and needed to see a doctor for it. i tried an urgent care facility and they recommended that i see an orthopedic. the orthopedic wouldnt take me without a referral letter and an MRI scan. when i finally had the MRI done and brought the scans to the ortho, he didnt even open them. all the doctor did was read the report from the initial visit at the urgent care and tell me that i would need to be in full traction for the next 3-6 months, the visit with the ortho lasted 5 minutes.
i got a second opinion with a different ortho and was told that if i carried through with the first doctors recommendations, i would be recovering for the next 2 years and possibly end up with a leg that would never be the same. i stopped care with the first doctor and contiued with the second doctor.
now i am receiving calls from a collection agency for the ~$550 balance owed to the MRI center for the MRI that was required by the first doctor, and then not even opened by him.
sorry if this is more medical than financial, but anything would help before i just swallow my pride and pay a bill.

Also get details on that $550, or at least ask them about how much of that amount includes fines and other fees. If it is a significant chunk of the amount then working with a debt settlement firm can help you cancel a lot, if not all of it.
