Resident fainting goat

In the event if its cheaper, do they offer the same knotch care as a reg OB/GYN or DR clinic?
The wait time to get an appointment is sometimes longer at PP, it's a major city full of students, so I sometimes have to wait a week for regular checkups. But otherwise, much of the same.
The office/waiting room isn't as fancy, that's really the only difference I've noticed. I mean, it's a larger center to be used by the public. So it's understandable that they don't have modern art in the lobby and a espresso machine :rofl1: but it's clean, modern, the technology and care is there, so who cares really? lol
they are also a lot more used to students and are used to A LOT of different BC methods. I found PP more knowledgable about new BCs and side effects and everything else than my gyno. Who, as a private doctor, has the luxury of being pretty set in her "ways" and BC methods.
It's also nice that it's a one stop shop. All testing, lab work etc.. is done in house. So no going anywhere else or referrals or calling other labs etc.. etc..
I'm a big fan of planned parenthood and all they do. Personally.
*that said, it does also depend on the private doctor and PP.
Some private doctors..suck, majorly.
some PP I'm sure are sucks as well.
but then again, at least all PP have policies and rules and universal knowledge within their staff.
