Scheduling a doctor’s appointment without health insurance can be a scary experience, and unfortunately this office does not break the mold. When I called in to get cash pricing for an ear cleaning I was told that the range of pricing for my visit would be $75-175. $75 for an office visit and $75 for an ear cleaning.
Dr. Blank spent no more than 5 minutes with me, looked in my ears and nose and said I had no wax and everything looked perfect. She recommended I get a hearing test, (of course only her office audiologists would be “most accurate and comprehensive” than the more affordable guys.) When I left to pay my bill it had jumped back up to the maximum possible bill, $175 for a 5 minute meet and greet. I was appalled, to say the least.
The representatives in the office had no interest in giving me the $75 price for the office visit because the doctor had “taken some notes” and directed her employees to charge me full price for the visit. I have a sneaking suspicion they were let down by the fact that my ears didn’t need any wax cleared out and wanted to bilk as much cash as they could from my wallet. I would recommend people to stay away from shady, opaque doctors like these guys.
If you’re a doctor you’re meant to serve people, not squeeze them for maximum profit when they walk in your door for the first time. The shiny glass facade for this medical office does not make up for the hollow money-grubbers inside. I won’t be coming back.
