I'm pretty strongly considering going to Immerman from North Dakota as well.

The only thing stopping me is cost.. so if you don't mind my asking how did you manage this ?

I got the info about the specific costs & a majority of it is upfront..

I mean.. I'm not asking specifically about your personal business just kind of a.. was there some sort of insurance you were able to get that I maybe could too.. or did you figure it out through other means ?
Insurance paid a good portion. If they don't, they, in most cases, will work with the doctors/hospital. You can discuss payment plans with them, as well. I was at the point with my son, where I was not going to let money be the factor. He was bleeding with open wounds for over a year. We did have to shell out a good portion for plane & hotel. It was all worth it. He's been healed for six months.

As long as you have a doctor to remove the drain, you should have no problems. The drain should not be a problem. Just follow the doctor's instructions. The last day or two, the drainage area may get sore, that's normal. If it gets really red and painful, take a picture and send to the doctor.
Thank you. So far so good I may be removing the drain. Dr said I could if I want- cut the stitch with sterilized sharp cuticle scissors and gently slide the tube out. I will ask his internist to do it but don’t know if he will.

I agree. I was going no matter what My insurance covered it. I don’t k ow how much but the clinic and hospital were considered “in network” for blue cross blue shield ppo which was a. Dry pleasant surprise.

Thank you for the posts! I am looking into dr immerman as well. The cost is going to be my factor keeping me from going to him.

We went through our insurance. Paid with payment plan for the rest. Hotel, airline etc. we paid cash.
