Frustration/Confusion

Posted by Cindy S. on 10/19/99 at 00:00 (011826)

I've been seeing a Podiatrist since April 1999. Had the shots, ultrasound, wraps, orthotics and night splint. Seemed to have gotten worse since started and then, just last month, seemed to improve slightly. Thought, maybe, it was the night splint. Seems to be back full force with the cold weather. Yesterday, received a bill (which I thought the doctor took care of) for the night splint - $165.00 - does that sound right?!? I'm frustrated because I'm only 38 years old with 4 kids to chase after and feel like 95! Confused because I don't know if I have the 'Right' doctor, and the money thing without results is getting me down. HELP! Thanks.

sounds way to much for a night splint. i would return it if you can. you can buy them off the internet at less than half that price.

I only paid $85 for mine through the podiatrist and I thought that was high!
