HelloMy name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to discussing this and providing you information in this regardI am sorry to hear that this situation has occurred.
Patient abandonment is when a doctor refuses to go ahead with necessary treatment after it is discovered that the patient cannot pay the cost associated with treatment. Therefore, since that is not your case, it is not Patient Abandonment.Unfortunately, it would be seen as a situation where the doctor was uncomfortable with continuing the procedure because it was his belief that you were not comfortable with what was going to be done.And so it appears while in your mind it could have been resolved with a 5 minute conversation, the doctor did not feel the same, could have a schedule to keep and just wanted to move forward that day.I hope that this information is helpful. If you need further information, please just send me a reply asking for clarification. After that, I hope you will enter a positive rating so that I will be credited for assisting you. Thanks again for using this service. Your business is appreciated.
