About Our Fees in General
All our medical costs, supplies, laboratory, equipment have increased due to the COVID crisis and are reflected in the current price structure.
Our Charges are based on the time spent on a case – consultations, file review, reports, email and calls. Our standard time fee had remained at $180 for 8 years , but we have had to raise the base fee to $240 per hour case time for 2020.
Teleconference consultation are fairly straightforward, time discussing the case and situation surrounding the case, file review and follow-up reports, email, etc. We do like to have a relaxed consultation and try to be fair about what is case time versus “visit” time. Follow-up Telemedicine consultations are billed at $120 and usually last 20- 30 minutes. We do charge for e-mail , text and non scheduled phone case guidance time but tend to accumulate these and add into the follow-up Case Guidance Time so the 20-minute teleconference plus a few email reports and directions will, usually, still only be the $120.
Our in-office consultations cannot be based, strictly, on time. Our initial consultations usually take longer than follow-up visits as we need time to get a perspective on the case. Our usual initial BASE consult fee for in person visits is between $225 and $250 unless very complex and extended. This does not include supplementary therapeutics like Thermal Imaging, Ultrasound, Laser Therapy, Ozone, herbs, medications or Laboratory. It does include acupuncture and chiropractic or other energy modalities. Follow-up sessions are usually $185 plus any supplementary therapy, medications or tests, if needed. We may choose to discount for repeat visits – like multiple laser treatments, acupuncture sessions in an initial course of therapy and will always work to deliver the needed amount of care at the best price structure we can.
