Does your endo charge for phone advice?
A few months ago my son had a fever and was producing ketones so I called my endo to get help with insulin dosing. Today I received a bill in the mail for $23 for the "5-10 minute medical consultation." I'm wondering if anyone else has an endo that bills for dosing advice. I didn't even speak with the endo himself but one of the nurse practitioners. The practice also charges $5/page for any forms you ask them to fill out for school, etc and $20 if you would like the A1c done by finger prick (A1c done by blood draw is free).
We had recently switched from seeing a physican at our local Children's Hospital to this private endocrinologist that came very highly recommended. I feel like, however, I am being nickle and dimed.
