The Surgery Center of Oklahoma City – http://www.surgerycenterok.com/ – was founded in 1998 by Keith Smith, MD and offers patients transparent, direct, package pricing. Patients know exactly what the cost of the service will be upfront. Fees for the surgeon, anesthesiologist and facility are all included in one price. There are no hidden costs, charges or surprises. Dr. Smith is now writing on his blog about the advantages to both patients and physicians offered by a direct, true free market, relationship.
