      Where are you located? I wish this was true around here. I paid $200.00
      for the initial visit to the cardiologist, $100.00 thereafter.
      I can go to a "low cost" clinic with an office visit of $19.50
      or I can go to a better vet for $32.00 office visit
      or I can go to the rich people's regular vet for $45.75 an office visit
      (they have heated tables instead of stainless steel!).

      So at best our cardiologist is twice that of the most expensive vet in town.
      Darn it all.......wherever you are, I'm moving there. hee hee

      ANYWAY, my reason for posting this, is I can't speak for every
      area, but I have found that the regular vets here charge about $10
      less for an office visit than the SPECIALISTS. I know a lot of
      people (myself included, previously) aren't aware that these
      specialists exist, and assume that their prices are astronomical, but
      this often is not the case. So please, where able, see a specialist
      if you aren't already. It makes a WORLD of difference...not just for
      HCM, but a number of conditions...

        I am in Southwestern Ohio and I paid $299 for my first
        visit, included the office visit, echo and bloodwork
        to rule out hyperT. Subsequent echos w/office visits
        have been $100. I was actually told in my first visit
        that followup echos were much cheaper. I think
        overhead has a lot to do with pricing. This practice
        has been located in an outer suburban ring strip mall
        for a long time, has relatively low support staff
        levels and the equipment and college loans are
        probably paid off as Rudy's doc is older.
