You have developed a pressing medical issue and need to see a doctor about it. You have, or have just found, a doctor who treats issues like yours and takes your insurance/offers sliding scale payment, and can see you soon. After making the appointment, you come across some information about this doctor. Which of these would cause you to cancel/skip the visit?
