Thank you for your information.
If there is a valid debt owing the doctor, he has 3 years from the date of service (or 5 years if written contract) to file suit to collect pursuant to the Virginia statute of limitations.
Thus, the doctor may still file suit to collect the past due bill if the three years have not passed. The time period will be extended to five years if you signed an agreement to pay for services rendered.
You will have to determine exactly when in 2005 you saw the doctor and whether you signed an agreement to pay for services rendered.
I hope that the information which I provided was helpful to you.
Best wishes for a successful outcome. If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to submit them to me directly.
