called the office and make arrangements for repayment. You could also try to re-negotiate the balance since you did not recieved the full treatment and you had side effects. I hope this help

When you get side effects from a medication, it isd your responsibility to inform the Dr. so t hat the medication can be changed.  They are not mind readers and you have to take some responsibility for your care.  You owe this, now pay and learn how to be a responsible patient.

it depends

first of all, was the total amount due a total of all planned treatments or was each treatment billed individually?  if it was a total amount due for treatments, then you should call the collection company that make a statement that you are in disagreement as to total amount due, and then you should contact the billing office of the medical entity and speak to them about prorating the charges to only include the services rendered.   now on the other hand, if you was being billed for each office call individually so that the total amount due is the total for only three (or however many) office calls, then the only thing available as a possibility is to call the main office of the medical entity and find out if they have any special programs available for reduced prices or any charitable organizations who might assist you in paying it.  if not then request low monthly payments from them is an option.  and by the way, not to recommend it, but once your bill gets sent to a collection agency, then it is already going on your credit record and that damage is for 7 years with the same damage done whether you pay it off or whether you never pay it,, its on there for that 7 years either way...

Pay them...consider a pay for delete scenario. You received a service & aren't paying....what did you think would happen?

You received services and you were billed. You owe them. Period.
