Yesterday, my doctor called and wanted me to come in for a check up. I told her that I couldn't afford a 150 dollar office visit just to shoot the shit. I don't mind paying 40 or 50 bucks for ten minutes worth of chit chat but 150 bucks or 900 dollars per hour just doesn't interest me.
I stumbled onto this chart and swiped it from http://www.financialarmageddon.com/
Trust me on this. If people are blowing off doctor visits, people are broke. Wow. It begs the question...just who is picking up the slack?
