Being in the medical administration field, I can tell you with a great amount of certainty - no! I see people getting screwed physically and financially all of the times. ---You can never ask your doctor too many questions, in my personal opinion. Additionally, you should always check with your health insurance, because, you can end up owing a great deal of money if you're not careful. And, last but not least, always get a 2nd, and even 3rd opinion if necessary when dealing with egregious medical conditions like cancer, diabetes, etc., to make sure you're getting the best treatment at the least cost.
