Are you uninsured or under-insured? Do you deny yourself of medical care because of financial constraints? The following is taken from a recent press release. It's OK to spread the word, perhaps other physicians will join.
Local Doctor Explains How Getting A Physical Before The New Year Makes You Money And Why He's Offering Office Visits For $75 Or Less

Whether you’ve been too busy to get to the doctor for your annual physical or think you just can’t afford it, there’s no time like the present to go! Many insurance companies are currently offering a money incentive ($250-$500) to members who complete their physical examination before the end of the year.
Igal Staw, of
Respiratory Associates P.C. in , says,
“This incentive is a benefit to both the insurance company and patients,
because patients are more likely to take advantage of preventive services, and
the insurance company then saves money on recurrent medical visits. It’s really
a win-win.” Dr. Staw suggests checking to see if your company participates. If
you haven't had your periodic medical evaluation yet, this is the time to do
it. And if you’re worried about the cost of your office visit, don’t be. Fairfield
From now until January 1st, any patient who visits Dr.
Igal Staw at his
will receive a quality medical exam, and the cost for this initial visit will
not exceed $75. According to Dr. Staw, “I’ve
seen too many patients over the last few years deny themselves healthcare due
to high deductibles or lack of insurance.
We want to ensure everyone has truly affordable medical care tailored to
their needs, especially at a time of year where budgets are really pushed to
the max.” Fairfield
The office will also offer blood testing at deeply discounted rates as well as X-rays, MRI’s, and cardiac stress testing/monitoring at appreciable discounts. The $75 rate is scalable in cases of financial hardship, because “you can’t put a price on the gift of health.” To make an appointment, please call 203-853-1919.
