Re: Wrong tree

OK, I'm at a loss. Why the hell is that? I'd think if I was going to discuss my healthcare, I'd want confirmation I was talking to my doctor's office.

A discussion about it here..

Please note - I'm not condoning this practice, merely pointing it out. As I live alone most of the time I don't really care. Ironically I got a call a month back from my surgery for someone else (a wrong number basically). They left a message on the machine saying that they were the surgery so withholding CLID was rather pointless I feel :)
