The initial consultation will usually be covered by your health insurance. If it is not covered, or you do not have health insurance that we take, or you do not have any health insurance, you will be given a 20% discount.
The cost of nail fungus laser procedure is $350 per treatment. We will do 3 laser procedures. Although we have found that while some people in Minnesota respond to just one to two treatments, nails grow so slowly (up to a year) that we couldn’t tell which patient will get better response within a few months. We have gotten a much greater success rate by performing 3 separate procedures for all nail fungus patients. These treatments are performed at 1 month intervals.
This laser procedure for nail fungus is currently not covered by any insurance. You may however, use your flexible spending or medical savings account.
The $350 must be paid in advance of performing each laser procedure. We take cash, check and charge (MasterCard & Visa)
Additionally, we always recommend using The SteriShoe sanitizer, it uses ultraviolet light to kills the organisms in the shoes that cause Toe nail fungus – Athlete’s foot – Offensive shoe odor. You can insert the SteriShoe sanitizer into your shoes and treat them for 45 minute. The price of a pair of SteriShoe is $130.
We no longer accept Healthpartner, Ucare, and Medicare; You will be able to see Dr. Shu if you are willing to pay for out of network expense, otherwise, you will be able to use Health Saving Account (HSA).
Refund & Cancellation Policy
If you cancel in advance of the laser you will not be charged for the procedure. If you have the initial consultation and opt not to perform the laser for any reason, your $151 consultation fee will not be refunded. If we determine that you are not a candidate for the laser, your initial consultation fee will not be refunded.
There are no refunds once the laser procedure is performed. We make no guarantees as to a successful outcome and cure of nail fungus. In the event that the procedure does not work, we will recommend other treatment alternatives or rarely, a repeat procedure (each treatments for an additional $350). (Unfortunately, just like every other treatment for nail fungus, the laser procedure will not work for everyone.)
