in Arlington, VA |
We like Dr Hougen and trust him as a doctor, but he sold his practice to Children's Hospital last year and now it's very expensive to see him. We used to pay just a co-pay for the office visit. Now, Children's Hospital also sends a bill for a facility charge. We usually pay a $35 co-pay but this time we also got a $900 bill from Children's Hospital for "facility" charges. It's the same office and same appointment. There are a lot of talented cardiologists in NOVA. This one is now too expensive
