In the July 17th issue of People (Meg Ryan/Dennis Quaid on the cover) there is a very positive/interesting article about a DO on page 117. It seems a Dr. Lisa Grigg in Vermont was getting her oil changed and noticed the pricing system posted on the wall. She got to thinking "that board was being honest with me. I wondered why medicine couldn't be like that" so she came up with a pricing system for her practice. She is strictly private pay - no insurances, and has prices such as "labor $2.00 a minute, small bandages $1.00, large bandages $2.00, and on up to knee splints $30.00." She says some doctors gripe she is undercutting their services, Grigg insists her approach is an attempt to repair the fractured relationship between the medical community & patients. So, what do you guys think? Sure did get her some free exposure! The article did not mention that she is a D.O. but in the picture she is wearing scrubs with her name embroidered on the pocket.
