Meet and Greet Visits
No charge! Come by for an extended “hello” visit before signing up and find out if the practice is a good fit for your needs.
As of Fall of 2018, the monthly membership fees (*) are:
$50 for those aged 18-50,
$55 for ages 51-55,
$60 for ages 56-60,
$65 for ages 61-65,
$70 for ages 66-70, and
$75 for ages 71 and up.
(*) Yes, if you’ve been with my practice for a while you may still be grandfathered into an even better older deal. (Shh!!)
I recognize that for many people in our community these prices will be a good bargain, yet for others these prices may fall outside of their budget. If you fit more into the latter category, please tell me about your situation and maybe we can work something out. I want high-quality medical care to be affordable for everybody.
There is a 10% discount for prepaying for a year’s membership.
There is an initial enrollment fee of $170 for new patients. (Additional family members may enroll at a $50 discount.) This fee pays for a comprehensive set of initial screening labs and also defrays some of the extra costs in time and effort I incur when treating new patients.
Medications and supplies
I offer a variety of generic prescription medications at steeply discounted prices. Hydroxocobalamin (a preferred/active form of Vitamin B-12) shots are available for $10 each. There may be modest and reasonable charges (generally at or near my cost) for other medications administered and supplies used or dispensed in the office.
There are no co-pays for the first 2 office visits in each calendar month. Subsequent visits during the same month may be charged $25 each. Video visits are counted the same as office visits for co-pay purposes, but no fees or co-pays apply to e-mails, texts, or telephone calls.
If mutually convenient, house calls may be scheduled for an additional $75 charge.
Outside GYN care
I provide basic well-woman care (including pap smears), but female patients may request to receive such care from a female associate of mine if they prefer. Fees for this service will be in the $40-$75 range (in addition to any lab costs).
In order to keep costs as low as possible, I avoid billing as much as possible. Accordingly, all fees are charged in advance. To facilitate payment of monthly membership fees, incidental labs, and co-pays as listed above, you should leave a major credit/debit card on file or (preferably) authorize automatic monthly deductions from a checking account.
