Price Equals Quality

3 on August 10, 2019

Does this equation applicable to gastric sleeve surgery? I like to choose for a cheaper price, but I may get a lower quality of service or the result may be less than expected. I know that we should look for the history of the medical center or the doctor who will do the surgery, but sometimes the success rate will increase the price of the surgery.

I’ve noticed some big name doctors will charge significant fees, only to have their nurses or other less-experienced  doctors do most of the work.  I find that frustrating!

I don’t believe that price is a good indicator for quality.  If that were true, then the health care industry wouldn’t adjust their prices based on whether the patient has insurance and if so, who it’s through.  Uninsured patients are typically charged less simply because they’re uninsured. Insurance companies are billed different amounts as are the government funded plans.

It depends on the location I guess. When we are in the urban area, then I think there will be competition, and the price will become reasonable. However, if we are in a place where there are a few surgeons that do the surgery, then the price will become higher.
