Visit duration and cost will be determined by the complexity of the problem or problems that you are coming in for, and how much time is needed to address these concerns efficiently but thoroughly.  

Below is an approximate range of prices you will pay for visits and related services like biopsies, injections, treatment of precancerous growths and cancers, etc.

You will be notified how much your visit will be when you book you appointment. 

**Please note: if you want to discuss additional concerns that you didn’t mention at the time of booking, or your problem is more extensive than you thought, the price of your visit may be more.  In addition, since we are trying to run on time, if you want to address concerns you didn’t mention at the time of booking, you may need to come back to address them, especially if there is a patient waiting.  We want to respect everyone’s time.
