Occurred to me, as I sort this out, why should I give a rat's ass about his professional "difficulties" when my issue is with the doc, not him?

And to imply my actions in covering my financial ass (because of the carelessness in the doc's office) somehow make me responsible for whether or not he continues that relationship with the doc? Ridiculous. Sounds as if their relationship was already tenuous. One patient does not a split make.

I'll be sorting this out for a while. Stay tuned and comments on both sides welcome.
