We also offer services at reduced cost:
- Immunizations (people with insurance often have this covered in full)
- Lab testing
- Durable medical goods (from local supplier)
We have also negotiated reduced prices for x-rays and other radiologic studies. We will always work to find new ways to save money. Why? It gives people one less reason to leave our practice! It’s just good business.
