In my case, visiting this doc had cost me more. Because this office has no nurses (only 2 people work there; the doctor and a receptionist), every visit including quick follow ups, vaccination, etc. would be charged at “doctor” rate (not nurse). So, going in just to get a vaccination would cost you $48 (one shot). Then, if you had negative reactions to the short received, a quick visit (10 min.) with the good doc would again cost you another $48. Then, going back to receive the rest of the shorts (in the series) would cost you $48 (min.) per visit.

Definitely not a perfect model for the health care reform.
