$1900 for the initial office call ??????? Sounds to me like YOU are paying for THEIR research! Nothing like the patient paying to take part in a research project!! Of course, I'm just in some hick town in mid-Michigan only large enough to support 2 hospitals but the worse initial office call I've encountered is $250. Matter of fact, I just visited Mayo Clinic last year, had a DEXA there, plus a 4 hour pamidronate infusion and xrays, for less than that! I sure hope this group/hospital is worth what you are paying!
