If you are worried about costs, and it is available in your area, give Care Credit a try. If you pay the bill before the promotonal period is up, you don not pay interest, just original charges. www.carecredit.com I have been using it for several years now. I even use it for my dentist - that is te one that ran up my total, 2 root canals and crows within 4 month. They are the only charges I am paying interest on, they are at 14%. It is worth a try.
