Have a new healthcare provider? Confirm their address before the appoinment

NYC Taxi


We have a new specialist and  after a year and a half of getting all the paperwork straight, we were finally able to go.

The thing is the primary doctor had the old address of the specialist.

I called paratransit with the old address, not realizing that it was “the old address”.

I called the office and they gave me the correct address.

This mistake cost me a “round-trip” cabride , since paratransit was not able to make  any same day changes.

So the lesson is,  call the provider, confirm the address, a month, a week a day before your scheduled appointment.

If you don’t, it may cost you more than cab fare.
