That is quite reasonable considering that you have an hour's consultation and a scan. Speak to your doctor and explain that you are having financial difficulties and see if you can negotiate a lower rate or fewer scans.

Im not a professional - but what I can tell you is i pay R1200.00 per appointment with my OBGYN - and I get 15 minutes of his time...

So cant tell you if you getting ripped off - but just to put your amount into perspective too...
