I can't believe I haven't mentioned this here yet, but last week I was doing some research on RE's, and I discovered that the doctor that my gyn referred me to (twice actually, but before I had any IF insurance coverage) has a really nice website. I'm such a sucker for a decent website! Not just a pretty, well-designed site, but one that's also informative, makes you feel like they care about their patients, and that they want your business. This site was like that. And bonus - they accept my insurance!
Well, on the site there's a note that says to contact them for specific pricing information. So I emailed saying I was waiting on a referral (technically I am, although I haven't asked my gyn for another one yet), gave them the reader's digest version of my history, and asked about pricing for testing. Lo and behold, by the end of the day I had a response - from the doctor! He gave me the price for an SA and also said with the extensive testing I've already had, he would need to talk to me about what other tests might be useful. I was impressed, and all the more impressed when that evening I had a voicemail from him following up on his email, and he even said if I couldn't call back until after hours I could have the answering service page him. Wow! Is this how all RE's are? I'm not even a patient yet!
So the question is, why haven't I called back? Honestly, the only excuse I have is that I've been super busy. But I'm going to do it TODAY. On my lunch break, since I won't have time after work. It's about time I stop dragging my feet already!
