    My doc told me I needed an ultrasound so she sent me to a specialist. I too was just sitting on the chair with no exam done. He walks in and asks what the problem is and I told him briefly(took about 5 seconds) He said I needed an ultra sound. Charged me $350. Guess he needed the money to play a round of golf. Bet he tips his caddy a shiny new dime!

    Finally,a doctor with a heart. Thank you. I do have to make a comment about the Cleveland Clinic. although the doctors are on salary it is still a for profit business. (my doctor is on salary) Their prices are high because they have to reward their CEOs the mega bucks whose primary concern is PROFIT. I think you already know that. Only the AMA and doctors can make the changes needed. We,as patients,are pee ons.I do not have my own lobby. If you all ever decide to really do something about this,Im in. Just give me a sign to carry! WE NEED MORE DOCTORS LIKE YOU !!!

    FYI I do come in for almost all these things. My greedy doctor charges me that extra 250 . That is 83 each script written for the medication I take for these health concerns.1/3 minute each at a total 1 minute. He has already checked my heart, lungs,and what ever else he checked during my wellness visit just less than a minute ago so he does not have do do it twice,but charges like he did. They call it a med check.Really?? What exactly did he check since an exam was already performed. All he did was write the damned scripts. What justifies this? Oh! I forgot-his poo doesnt stink. Maybe patients should hold a strike in front of their doctors offices to shame you. I am in if someone should ever have the you know what to arrange one. Or better yet why doesnt just one doctor from every office in the country march at their capital building to change things to better their patients if you really care so much about us. Put your time where your mouth is.

    Oh! but you did design the system. It is called the AMA. They and their big bucks lobby and pay off politicians to benefit you not sick people. Medicare may lower their reimbursement fees but than you just jack your prices for people with private or no insurance. Our deductible goes up and we have to pay more out of pocket. ie and extra 250 to write a few scripts that takes you only one minute to write. But then your poo doesnt stink so I guess you are allowed to rip us off.
