    you and my husband.......forgetting bp medicine. when gretch asked this question earlier, i looked up my receipt/folio from lacabana.
    when lacabana contacted the house dr. (a very nice woman ) they too charged us 75 cents for the outgoing local call.

    then there was a $20 charge for the dr phone consultation..... money well spent

The phone charges were for the local doctor that the front desk called for me 4 times and I recall it was around 75 cents a minutes.

    Same exact story 75 cents for the phone calls to the doctor and I was told that the doctor would write me the prescription and charge me $20.

    However, she didn't want to come during the weekend and wanted me to wait until Monday. One of the people at the reception desk suggested I take a walk to the botica (pharmacy) down by Alahambra Casino because sometimes there was a resident doctor there. So off I went and either the pharmacist or a doctor there wrote the prescription and only charged me $3.50 for the consultation and $5.00 for a 5 day supply..
