How do I know what lab tests to order? Check with your healthcare provider.  If you need routine lab work done, you may order it prior to your regular visit.

Do I need a doctor’s order to get blood work? No, you do not need an order.  This allows you to check on your routine lab work without having to wait for an appointment.

You may be surprised that there are many affordable surgical options throughout the United States. In general, outpatient surgical sights are the best option to pursue first. Many locations now post their prices. If you cannot find prices in your location, you might use estimation from another location to determine if estimation you are receiving is reasonable. 

A commonly asked question is, “Are the surgeons who perform surgery high quality?” This is a great question to ask. It is not uncommon for surgeons to perform surgery at the local hospital(s) and outpatient surgical site. Some hospitals restrict surgeons from operating at outpatient surgical sites. The best way to determine whether you trust a surgeon’s skills is to get recommendations. 

How much should my surgery cost?

Usually, the cost at outpatient surgical sites is much lower than at a hospital. However, many hospitals are beginning to feel the free market pressures to compete with pricing and service. Ask the hospital to give you an estimate of the “total” costs. Be sure they include the professional fees (surgeon, radiology, etc.).You may get an estimate from some locations that post their prices online. Here are a few examples:

 Monticello Community Surgery Center
2331 Seminole Lane, Suite 201
Charlottesville, VA 22901

Surgery Center of Oklahoma
9500 N. Broadway Ext.
Oklahoma City, OK 73114

Crouse Hospital
736 Irving Ave
Syracuse, NY 13210

Another option is to get an estimate of what you might expect to pay by submitting a request on Medibid ( There is a fee for your request. You will receive estimates of costs from health care providers in the United States and overseas.

We are excited to let you know that you may get an affordable MRI or CT scans!  Most hospitals charge $3,500 for an MRI. You will pay $350-800!  If you need contrast imaging, there may be an additional expense.  If you have claustrophobia, an open MRI may alleviate this fear.  Those with back pain may not be able to lie flat.  There are new imaging machines that allow you to stand!  Be sure to ask about this option. In general, CT scans are approximately half the price of MRI imaging. CT scans expose the body to a rather significant amount of radiation.  It is important to limit the number of CT scans done.
