I got off the hook with $15 worth of antibiotics for today. But the doctor is chomping at the bit to fix my other tooth with an old crappy filling in it. Why? $1,200, that's why!
I spelled it out clearly to his assistant, when she set the appointment for next week to check the status of the swelling in my gums and to "go ahead and take care of tooth 13" : Do you have $1,200 in your pocket for a tooth that isn't bothering you... especially 2 weeks away from Christmas?
yeah, I didn't think so.
