I went a medical practice next to my work. They charge $80 the consultation, which is not cheap but not yet extravagant.
I have to say that the doctor took all the time in the world. I noticed that we start talking about the reason I came only after 4 minutes and the physical examination started only after 10 min.
He didn't the necessary medical supplies and had to leave the room for like 2 minutes
I was surprised by the slowness of the doctor until I saw the bill, then I understood. I paid $180 for a "long consultation" (more than 20 minutes).
So I believe I have been scammed with a smile.
Also the consultation seems to start from the moment the doctor comes in the waiting room and until he brings you back there, and not just the time in consultation room.
What can I do?
