Recently, Ft. Collins Positive Dental & Vision Doctors, Dr. Dave Robinson and Dr. Mike Cozzetta were in deep discussion about the state of healthcare and the idea of “cheap” vision exams and dental exams.
They realize the economy is affecting how people view eye exams and dental exams, and are looking for deals. The idea of making a buying decision based on what or who is cheaper has become ingrained in people’s spending habits.
Cheap does Not Mean the Same When it Comes to…
Your Vision and Dental Care
Both Drs. Dave and Mike remember what it was like to watch pennies in college and professional school. When looking for buying say, Bose speakers, Dr. Dave checked out specials and who offered the best deal.
A Bose speaker is a Bose speaker, no matter where it’s purchased. It was the brand that was the same; it didn’t matter where it was purchased.
It seems we are willing to pay more for a Lark Burger than we are for a McDonald’s hamburger. If you’ve had a Lark Burger you know the difference; taste, quality of beef, respect for the environment, and that whole “buy local” concept. Yet, it’s still a burger.
Vision and Dental Care is a Service, Not a Widget
The same analogy can be made for dental and vision exams. You can go to a big-box store and get an eye exam. You get your eyes dilated and an exam. Is it the same as an eye exam at Positive Dental & Vision?
Emphatically, NO! At Positive Dental & Vision you are going to get your health history taken, a comprehensive exam which includes refraction, visual acuity, and more.
Is “Cheapest” the Best Choice…
when It Comes to Your Health Care
Here is the reason the discussion between the doctors at Positive Dental & Vision was so significant.
It’s your LIFE, your health; we are talking about. Keep in mind, most insurance companies dictate our customary fees.
Back to the beginning, the economy has taken its toll on most of us. How and where we spend our money matters to us. You may not be choosing your Eye Doctor on whether or not they serve fresh baked cookies. We hope that you will See with a Smile the quality of health care, we provide to you. Your health matters the most to us.
We’d love to know your thoughts on this, is cheapest the best route to take, when it comes to your health?
