Hello Gordana, Sorry for any confusion related to the billing process. Due to the increasing cost of health care, we discount all services to our self-pay patients by 50 percent. Even so, the total bill can be expensive if procedures and/or follow-up visits are needed. We aim to be up-front about all of the involved costs when treating our patients and again apologize for any confusion. Please call us if you have any further questions about the billing process. Thank you for the feedback.
