Manatee Dermatology
Called them and they said a check up would cost $100.00 and up depending if other service was needed. I told them more then once that I was self pay and was cost conscience. They saw 4 moles they wanted to remove. She said she did not think they were cancerous but should check them just in case. They were negative like she thought. Office visit $310.00. Lab cost $960.00. $1270 and I never saw the Dr. just the nurse practitioner. Maybe if the Dr had looked at the moles, he would have seen they were OK.Called the lab and they said they would just charge me what medicare paid, $518.00. Why would they try and charge a self pay almost twice as much they would charge medicare???? I will never go back. Still cost $828.00 for my first check up. I still feel very ripped off. I felt the care and staff were fine.
Tips & Advices
Cosmetic dermatology is a specialization of the field, which focuses on a person's appearance.
See a dermatologist if you have recurring problems with your skin, hair, nails or mucous membranes, or for any concerns about cosmetic appearance. Medicare patients will likely pay 20 percent of the Medicare-approved amount if the health care provider covers dermatology for a medical skin condition.
Dermatology tends to be covered by insurance if it is deemed a "medical necessity." The amount of coverage and cost depends on the specific health plan.
There is such a thing as a pediatric dermatologist--medical professionals who treat children from birth through adolescence - usually for skin conditions most common in younger patients. Regular dermatologists can also work with children of various ages.
Dermatologists can perform biopsies, dermabrasion, hair removal, laser surgery, cosmetic injections (like Botox), Mohs surgery for skin cancer, skin grafts, vein therapy, and chemical peels, to name a few.
