"Randy Spielvogel of Mobile Life said the clinic is booked solid, almost completely with Manitobans. It offers only screening for MS therapy to determine a patient's suitability, and not the therapy
"There's obviously a demand for this CCSVI screening, and we're just filling that void," he said.
Some patients, however, have been met with a bill that's twice as large as they expected.
Spielvogel said that because he underestimated the amount of time the screening procedures take, he's had to raise costs to $800 from $400.
He said he didn't realize how time-consuming the tests would be when he first announced what they would cost months before the clinic opened.
"That we didn't realize … and that was our fault," Spielvogel said. "We shouldn't have opened our mouths, put the cart before the horse."
