    My ob gyn, whom I am receiving prenatal care from recently attempted to charge me for an ultrasound which I didn't A. Ask for or B. Necessarily need. I also wasn't made aware of any charge for it and so I refused to pay. The nurse had asked the ultrasound tech to check the babies heartbeat. (It is routine to check the heartbeat, but not necessarily with the ultrasound equipment). Out of concern, and because she already had the equipment ready to use, the tech took it upon herself to check the fluids around the baby. (I'm 41 weeks pregnant.) the doctor walked in and began screaming at the tech in Russian but I understood the conversation. She was yelling that the insurance would not cover it and the tech answered her that it wasn't a big deal. The yelling continued in the hallway. When the doctor came in to check me, she told me I'd have to pay half the cost for the ultrasound. ($40) I flat out refused. But I did this not solely based on this particular situation but on the fact that the doctor had asked me several times throughout my pregnancy if I wanted treatments I'd have to pay for in cash. At one point she offered a herbal remedy to help the baby turn head down. She told me it was $100 and i would need to pay an extra $50 if it worked. I denied all these "additional" services because well, they just seemed like a scam artists ways to make extra cash. After refusing to pay, she replied okay, didn't offer any more information about the baby or scheduling another appointment or induction and walked out of the room. She then began screaming at all of her employees. It was the most ridiculous spectacle I've ever seen. I want to report her but I'm not sure how to go about it.

    Crime does indeed pay, if you're white, male, and aren't above dancing with your corporate pimps. Go big, or go to the Big House.

    Do you mind if I post parts of this on Facebook and other blogs, as long as I refer to the original?
