(Dialing, phone ringing 1x)
CLINIC: Dr. Wylick’s (ph) office.
CALLER: Hi. Yeah. I was calling to see if you guys do abortions there.
CLINIC: Yes, uh-huh.
CALLER: How much does it cost for that?
CLINIC: Just a moment please.
CLINIC: $440 (?) in cash at the time of service.
CLINIC: The thing is, my boyfriend said he would pay for everything in cash. But I’m must kind of worried. I’m going to be 14 later on this month, and my friend told me that you guys would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22, and he said he would take care of everything. Would that be all right, and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?
CLINIC: You would need to talk with the nurse practitioner about that. There are certain restrictions that do apply. So she’s the one that would talk with you and let you know exactly where you stand.
CLINIC: If you’d like to leave your name and your number, she will
CALLER: Well, I’m at my friend’s house. And her mom would answer the phone, and I’d get in trouble.
CLINIC: Okay. Well, then you call us back when you can be called back, okay?
CALLER: Well, could I ask you something else different though?
CLINIC: Well, I don’t know anything about it. She’s the one that would have to answer the questions for you.
CALLER: What’s her name?
CALLER: And what was your name?
CALLER: Okay. So should I just call back later this afternoon?
CLINIC: You can. If she’s not in with a patient, she’ll talk with you because she just makes calls and takes messages in between patients.
CALLER: So she doesn’t have her okay. Well, do you guys ever do pregnancy tests there?
CLINIC: We do for our patients, yes. And if you come in, and you’re scheduled, and you don’t have one, you would have to do that. If you’re wanting one, and you think you need one, the best place to go is Planned Parenthood. They’re cheaper, and
CALLER: But they gave me your number to talk to.
CLINIC: But did they tell you about a pregnancy test?
CALLER: Just told me to call you guys.
CLINIC: Well, it’s more expensive to have to come here and have it done.
CALLER: Well, my boyfriend said he would pay for everything.
CLINIC: We don’t do it unless you’re an established patient or you have scheduled to come in for your exam.
CLINIC: Okay? So if you want to leave your name and number, Mary will call you back; or if you want to call back, then you can do that.
CALLER: Okay. I’ll just call back.
CALLER: All right. Thanks.
CLINIC: Thank you. Bye.
