$4229 Doctor Visit

August 29th, 2008 at 07:33 pm

Took my 5yo for a well-child visit where the doctor heard a heart murmur and referred us to a pediatric cardiologist.

At the cardiologist's office the doctor checked his heart via stethoscope and ultrasound to the tune of $4229. My portion to pay after insurance is $1553.11. And my son will need to get checked again later.

The high cost of medical care never ceases to amaze me.
