Its hard for me to kep track of what is "normal" or usual, as such transactions are not publicised. This does sound expensive - though last time I had an agonising kidney stone, I was called to a hospital where I spend 15 minutes siting on a bed and 40 minutes in a waiting room for a scan, and was discharged without even having met the doctor at all - and was made to pay R 22,000 in advance, and then billed for some 15,000 of that for services nearly rendered !
Try calling FAMSA, which could probably refer you to some family / marriage counsellors near you with some idea of their likely fees, probably lower than those you cite.
