Why must I come in for an initial meet & greet visit?

Your doctor wants to obtain a comprehensive medical history from you. At this visit you and the doctor will decide whether to enter into an ongoing doctor patient relationship. The first visit with the doctor is purely to establish the framework for the future doctor patient relationship and does not include any medical management. At this visit you should establish exactly what further visits are necessary for the effective management of your medical problems.

Why did the clinic charge me?
