Just for clarity, what do you mean by the venogram? If it's the venogram part of the procedure, there would then also include a fee for ballooning. This sounds to me like the venogram fee if nothing is found. The cost of the full procedure is much higher than $3000. 8O

yep, basically the Veno-gram is 3000, and the ballooning procedure is 2000.

Stents are 2000 grand each...........

Venogram cost $3000. Angioplasty $2000. Total cost of procedure $5000. I was charged $3000 as they were unable to perform angioplasty.

no wonder he's booked until spring.... (Siskin)

We probably need to start using doctor's names, and not Albany, since there are two docs in Albany, and there has recently been discussion that the prices at the other Albany doc (Mehta) are much higher.

Sorry to hear they were unable to perform the angio.
