If I go in to get prices.. do they charge me for that? If i go in, then leave, then go back to get the treatment or whatnot, I need to know everything. I'm going this solely on my own. I'm 18 btw. :P
Hi Mystikins, I don't have insurance (anymore at least) and when I made my first derm appointment (I called around to find out prices) the first consultation visit was 80 dollars. They give you a perscription and everything just like a normal visit, they can just charge you more because they spend 2 minutes getting your history vs. 30 seconds to look at your face and say "okay well try this now...come back and see me in 4 months..." The visits each time after that are 52 bucks. Very cheap. My perscriptions are not that expensive either. 20 bucks for over two months of doxycycline (antibiotic) and 35 bucks for azelaic acid which lasts 5 months and a topical erythromycin gel that costs 26 bucks for a 60 gram tube, which also lasts me 5 months. All very cheap considering...
