"Having worked in the medical field in the U.S. I'm shocked that any one would complain about the prices here.  And, I'm with you Amanda, using the jubilado discount makes me feel guilty.  Also, my doctor charges ZERO if I…"

"I went to see Dr. Gomez just a couple of weeks ago and he charged us the usual $12.00. I do know he charges $15.00 at the weekend, and quite rightly so.....he works 7 days a week.  Also, he sent me for a x ray at the small clinic.....it only…"

""Nothing" here in Canada (well, "nothing directly out of your pocket" anyway). But I have to agree with Mike and others - $10, or $20 is "nothing" compared to almost anywhere else..."

"August 11th, when you went to the clinic, is a Saturday, when prices are higher. Also, if you do not have jubilado status, the price will be higher. The $12 is for jubilados on weekdays."

"$10, $12, or $20. I don't know how you could rationalize any of those fees as overcharging. Quit whining and stop disrespecting doctors who are trying to keep you healthy for a very small fee."

"I doubt it. I have maximum coverage both here and in the States. If you always pay your own way, what does this mean: "If someone is watching [their] $, you can always go to the social security Hospital. I have [gone] there for teeth cleaning…"

"I always pay for my own injections and bring them with me or pay for them at the hospital. As far as using the governments system. I have only used it for emergencies over 10 years ago in Boquete when there was no other medical help available. As…"

Charles Frogge replied to Charles Frogge's discussion Doctor visits price increase
"The reason for my last visit was exactly the same as the previous visit. That is the reason I asked if there is an increase in the cost. I do not like to be overcharged for any reason. It diminishes my respect for the doctor and his office.…"
