Went to NFRMC ER last Wednesday. Was seen almost immediately. Everyone involved in my care was great and highly professional. They did not give a chance to complain about anything. Even though I visited for a minor dressing, the staff treated me with care and dignity. Everyone was responsive. Very happy with the care I got. Won’t hesitate to return

Unfortunately had to visit the ER on a Saturday night. I was hesitant initially because I was not sure if I would even be seen as I have witnessed a rush of patients at this ER, especially on the weekends. I was in for a pleasant shock when I reached the ER. Even though there were few patients, but things were moving quickly. I was taken in, and paperwork was filled, and before I got a chance to settle down, was called back to the room. The doctor was beside me in minutes. He had excellent bedside manners and did not beat around the bush. Was to the point, heard me out, and even before it was 10 minutes, I was being rushed for an x-ray. The x-ray was negative, and I was diagnosed and given appropriate treatment. The entire visit lasted for maybe an hour, not more. Thrilled with this visit. Not sure if it would be repeated but I am willing to take a chance.

How much would one pay for getting an infected spider bite treated? Maybe a couple of hundreds or at the tops 500 to 600 dollars, right. Well, you are wrong, especially if you visit NFRMC. These guys charged me $2875 for a 15-minute consultation!!!!

Early January, I had a spider bite which had become infected, and I visited the ER for appropriate dressing. The doctor saw me, cleaned the wound, and then gave me a script for antibiotics. The total time I spent with the doctor was around 15 minutes. Two days back, I get a bill for $1685. I call up my insurance, and they say they have paid their part, and this is my part. I was shocked. I mean how can one charge nearly 3000 dollars for a bloody f***ing spider bite. I call up the hospital billing department, and they said the bill was correct. The moment a doctor writes a prescription, they charge you for Level-3 services, and it begins from $1200…tell me which doctor would not prescribe medication if you have an illness.

I could not believe what they told me….this is nothing but highway robbery. $2875 for a treating a damn spider bite….
