A rate a loan shark would charge: $.73 per page

I am in the process of switching doctors. I contacted the office of my former doctor to request my records be transferred to my newly selected doctor. I was told I had to submit the request in writing. Not a problem. Then I was told there is a photocopying fee of $.73 per page. And there is some other administrative fee for processing the request.

The $.12 per copy charged at Staples and FedEx Office is truly a bargain.

And I wish we had the medical system established in France. All your medical records are stored on a electronic card. You carry that card to each appointment. No usurious fees in France. And they save on paper.
