Description of service
201.00 for a regular physical exam, pap smear, and a script written, with a 2nd script written for a mammogram (recommended) I am 43 so that was why since I haven't had one yet. Office Surgery (they took blood) was 20.00 I need thyroid levels checked. I have over active thyroid, with graves and they needed to be sure it was where it belonged. 19.00 for office pathology (I believe this was for the pap smear testing). Since I am accustomed to paying around 5.00 more out of pocket for each blood run for the thyroid after I am charged 300 and then insurance says we will pay around 20.00 patient pays 5-6 dollars. It's a racket without insurance.
Review of Service
The doctor was kind, helpful, and explained as certain types of checking were done that is was going to be feeling a certain way. Warning me of what was to happen so I would not be taken by surprise. That helps a patient feel at ease. I did indeed leave the office feeling like the doctor cared and took as much time as was needed to do a routine physical.
I had set this appointment up with a local endocrinoligist. I found out at the appointment that this peticular endo was a fertility endo. Not a thyroid or regular? endo. I didn't know there was a difference. This doctor did however perform the much needed things for me and suggested I find a regular (thyroid) endo for my next appointment. So if you need a specialist, and are exhausting the list, verify they are the type of specialist that handles the specialty you need. Good Luck!
