You think $1400 is too much for a neurologist! You have to be kidding me - 3 tests were included, you should've been billed much more! Do you have the first clue how much malpractice that neurologist has to pay to see you? How many staff she paid?
The reason why health care is so expensive is not because all doctors out there are greedy. Health care is so expensive because our country is in dire need of tort reform and insurance reform.
No one forces drs to perscribe meds that dont work you say?? What do you thik drs sit in their offices pulling on their handlebar mustaches chuckling about how they are screwing the patients over? The doctors prescribe the medicines based on the results they are provided by the drug companies. What else could they do? Do you expect every physician to conduct his/her own drug trial to access the viability of every drug on the market? Obviously they can only prescribe the meds they have to work with and can only operate on the knowledge given to them. You, sir, are looking for a scapegoat. Point fingers all you want but until you stand up and accept some personal responsibility nothing will change.
