I’m on my tenth set of aligners and still haven’t been seen by my orthodontist, is this right?

Hello Doctor Patel. I wondered if you could please advise me on something? I have a problem with an overbite and so decided to start using invisalign last September.
I am now on my tenth set of aligners and still haven’t been seen again by my orthodontist. I haven’t been asked to arrange an appointment or anything. I thought the aligners had to be changed and fitted by them? To ensure the correct fit etc. I am not sure if I’m on the right track. I only saw him in my consultation day.
Is this right? I don’t even know if the treatment is working properly, as I’m not really sure what to expect. These aligners cost me a fortune. I don’t know what I should do, should I ring the practice up do you think, I don’t want to insult him by suggesting he isn’t providing me with the correct treatment.  What do you think? 
Hi, thanks for your question. I generally see my patients every 4-6 weeks to check on the treatment progress. I hope this helps.
