Quote:“I’m freed up to do what I think is right for the patients,” Ciampi said. “If I’m providing them a service that they value, they can pay me, and we cut the insurance out as the middleman and cut out a lot of the expense.”

Before, Ciampi charged $160 for an office visit with an existing patient facing one or more complicated health problems. Now, he charges $75.

Patients with an earache or strep throat can spend $300 at their local hospital emergency room, or promptly get an appointment at his office and pay $50, he said.

I think this is a great idea for the common ailments that are easily diagnosed and treated, as for more complicated health problems I'm not so sure. I will take the 'wait and see' path on this one.

I apparently had a complicated health problem once that no doctor could diagnose so they just kept prescribing me stronger and stronger cortisone lotions for my hands. Finally I was diagnosed with psoriasis (which I knew was bullshit) and got sent on to a specialist. I never went because my neighbor told me what it was and told me what to do. Never had a problem since. chuckle.gif
