Well, I've called most of my friends and the $2,000 fee is low. I had "all inclusive" quotes from as high as $4,500 to the a low of $3,700........until I called a group that my friend in Elgin told me about.
The Gerstein Eye Institute, at 3042 W. Peterson Ave (just east of Lincoln) in Chicago can offer you a complete package, surgery, operating room, anesthesia, intraocular lens
, all surgical equipment, operating room nurses, and post op care for $2,700 total.
You would have to pay about $175 for a complete exam up front, but this would be applied in full to the above price for the surgery should you elect to proceed.
Also, they offer "Credit Care" which is interest free financing for 12 to 18 months for the entire surgical bill. Heck I don't even do that in my practice!
You can talk to their nurse, Kathy, at(###) ###-####for more information. Tell Kathy you are the person that the retina doctor called about.
Here is a link to their web page:
This is by far the best deal you are going to find. I wish you good luck. Have a Happy Holiday Season
