I was surprised once again last Friday at my dentist’s. I had an appointment to have my crowns checked, especially that one I had to have fixed during my trip in England. It required a short examination only as it took Dr. Phelps only a few minutes to check that everything was ok and that the crowns were still sitting firmly. And then I had my surprise: no charge! As it had been a short examination only and as he hadn’t done anything but check. I like that attitude.
Similarly good and for a German as remarkable as service without charge was my experience – renewed experience as I had had that happen before – at the local hospital last week when I had my blood work done and got a rebate of 25%. Admittedly it was, again by German standards, fairly expensive at $165 for just a cholesterol screening, but the information, “if you pay now we cab give you a 25% rebate” surprises me again and again.
