First off, if they are out of network don’t go, unless you want to have a fat bill.
I had a consultation, about 30 mins $400, insurance covered $16, not cool and I have pretty good insurance.
Wasn’t impressed by Dr. Robert Minkowsky, he listened went through the motions, he kept on talking about conservative approach which I could tell meant we will have lots of appointments.
He tried to get me to take prednisone to reduce inflammation, but prednisone is a pretty nasty drug and is not conservative approach.
He is old school, which is not always bad, but their office won’t communiate with email and the whole prednisone approach is outdated and dangerous.
