I feel robbed

Okay to start with, I have been having problems with my feet for sometime now. The pain got to the point of being unbearable. So I went to my Dr., and she referred me to the Foot clinic 25 miles away. So the next day I went, hoping that they would be able to help me.
Well long story short, I have spurs on both heals and the soft tissue is flaired up. Also they said that I have torn tendens on bottom of both feet. Okay, so I ask what can be do to help it heal up. So they taped up both my feet, and also taped a pad on the bottom of my feet. And told me to wear this for a week, and then come back. So I did this for two days, and it was very hard to walk. After working one night for 9 hours, the next day my feet were so swollen that I couldn't even walk or even think about going to work. So I call them and ask if this is normal. No, it isn't they say. So they ask me alot of questions. Then I find out that this was an experiment that they tried on me, and wasn't sure if it would work or not.
Now I'm mad. So I feel that since this little experiment that they did on me didn't work, that I shouldn't have to pay for the whole bill. I understand the visit, but not for the supplies that they wasted on me and didn't work. My question is, do I have a right to tell them that I shouldn't have to pay for something that didn't work? I don't think that I should. I missed 8 hours of work because my feet swelled so badly I couldn't walk to even make it to work. Then to find out that they didn't know if this would work or not, because it was an experiment. What do you all think?
