Hi all - I have made contact with my first prospective provider (phone) and have discussed setting up a visit for this coming Friday. We talked briefly and she told me to give her a call on Thursday to finalize. She didn’t ask for any references (or similar questions) and I have noticed that there are many discussions on the newbie board around the need for providers to request references from hobbyists. She is highly TER reviewed and has her own web site. I was a bit surprise she didn’t question me more. Any insight here or do you think she will inquire more of me when we finalize the visit. Thanks in advance.
probably covered all the stuff she might have done. Providers all have their own ways of determining whether or not you are safe, including gut instinct. If she is well-reviewed on here, then you are probably good to go. Thank your lucky stars you didn't have to jump thru dozens of hoops to get verified, and go ahead and enjoy.
She does of course have my e-mail and phone number of course. The reason for my question was more along the lines of reading on TER that a provider not asking for references should be a flag. Glad to hear some/many providers go by gut instinct or other methods. Just another newbie going through the learning process. Thanks to all for the great information.
