Thank you ladies. All of your replies are full of encouragement and with sense of comradery. I felt the same way. I let the dr check my clients for ref., kept asking me to come in & i did, tested my software skills, tested my billing skills with real claims, got me to waive setup fee, beat down my rate, put a cap on the total fee, is planning on tripling my workload, and then expects me to smile & say "Yess Saa, Whatever You Say Saa".

I'v had one client since '06 & another since '01. Only two, but niether ever dropped me for a reason. We billers really do help dr live a financially sound lifestyle. And everyone including dr ought to get paid for thier work. Its not an obsurd concept. Its democracy & capitalism. Otherwise we're all slaves in some way.

Geez, sorry your client turned out like that. I'm just getting started in this biz, not even really started yet, still struggling with the details, especially software, but I've owned a business before. You can't start blaming yourself every time you lose some business. Some people aren't going to be happy no matter what. Some will be jerks just to intimidate you into giving them free or discounted services. I had to struggle with being kind of a pushover myself, but eventually you get tired of it. Sorry about your experience, but it's a learning one. Thanks to you and everyone else here for keeping me inspired and in the game.

Hi. I am so sorry that it turned out like this for you. I think you did a wonderful job selling him your business. I think the "doctor" is a little confused. I have to say, you made a very professional exit. I think that when the doctor thinks things over, he may give you a call back.

I am new to this business. I worked for a medical billing company for 1 year and they relocated to Maine. I have now decided to open my own medical billing company. Still looking into the appropriate software. It is such a hard decision.

There is a lot more involved in running a billing service than most understand until they've tried to do it themselves.   ;D
