Thank you for your quick answer. The surgeon's office is small. I only remember there being three people in there when I went. Today when I talked to the receptionist she said I couldn't talk to the office manager then because she was also the nurse and was busy with patients. My clinic is suppose to call me back Monday and let me know if they found the papers or not. I'll ask them if they will call the surgeon's office, I'm sure they will. Right now, the surgeon's office is only threatening to turn the bill over to a collection agency. If they refuse to forgive the bill, should I ask them to sue me instead? And what if my clinic can't find the papers? She said she remembers it. I'm concerned about my credit because I just got it back up to a good rating a few years ago. Again, thank you for your help. This should cover everything. I'll submit a great feedback for you after this answer so you'll get paid. Thank you.
