The cost of the second opinion consultation is $1,000. Payment is due upon completion of your consultation, less the $150 non-refundable deposit.
The Second Opinion Consultation
The second opinion consultation with your child and both parents will last approximately 2 hours. For a child, we require the child be present and strongly advise that both parents participate in the initial consultation.
The second opinion consultation includes a review of your or your child’s history and a physical examination. At the conclusion of this consultation, you will be presented with a detailed list of recommendations to consider for your or your child’s treatment plan (to be discussed with your primary medical doctor).
This is a one time consultation and there will be no follow-up consultations by phone, office visit or email. There will be no blood drawn or IV medication administered at the time of the second opinion consultation.
And from there...
If, after the second opinion consultation, you decide that you would like to become an active patient of the practice, you will have to schedule an initial consultation at the first available time. The initial consultation will be with Dr. O’Hara and/or Dr. Szakacs. The cost for this consultation is $1,000.
