We’re starting a new segment with our blog where we address frequently asked questions we hear from patients and potential patients alike. Let’s start today with the basics.
What does it cost to visit the IBS Treatment Center?
The Center offers a 10-minute pre-consultation over the phone or Skype for just $65.
Your first in-office visit costs just $199 for a 35-minute visit with one of our doctors that specializes in IBS. When you come in person the $65 pre-consult fee will be deducted from the $199 fee for your first visit!
So essentially, you can have a 10 minute pre-consult with a doctor from the IBS Treatment Center for essentially free!
