    Dr Nelson did a great job checking my daughters eye due to her contracting herpes in her eye. However he continued to have us come in for several days to check her eye. Never once was it mentioned that every time he saw her he would charge us $200 for 3-5 minutes of care. I just think it is wrong that the medical field can do this without notifying you. I assumed it was followup care and not billed as a new appointment every time. Its my fault for assuming but this kind of billing is wrong.
