      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.
