Dr.Michael Ciampi!! That's awesome! Something tells me his reputation/word of mouth already has him a verrrrrrry busy Doctor.

(Dr. Ciampi kinda reminds me of my family Dr. R. a little, although I won't be expecting any discounts anytime soon. <3 )

There's one like that around here. He does ok but doesn't have a line out the door or anything.

No insurance/lower prices only increase patient count if the doctor is a good one. If they're a hack word will get out (or already be out) and nothing will change.

Welcome to the future.I have been paying cash since 1987 when cancer caused my premiems to go from 300 to 1800 per month. Just had some cancer removed from my knuckles last week for 250 bucks and will have under my eye done Monday for 150. My Doctor is famous and an award winning plastic surgen who will not take gov ins and will retire soon due to obamacare. good luck to those who think they deserve free healthcare,I would rather pay for it and get a deal for paying cash

Awesome! That is the key- insurance is expensive, and that is mostly because doctors and hospitals seem to think they can charge astronomical prices for even basic services. There is no way it should cost $125 or $150 to see a doctor for 5 minutes to have them look into your throat and verify you have strep, but that's what most doctors are charging these days.

Just another example of the free market at work.

Seems so simple, but if the majority of our healthcare providers would follow suit most of our outrageous health bills would go away probably.
