Ardas Clinic


We see patients of all ages, for all conditions. This is family medicine. If we can not help you, we will find you someone who can.

These prices apply if you are uninsured or have CICP, not if you have Medicaid or other insurance. Most of these are in addition to the suggested visit charge ($45), unless you only need shots.

We accept cash or credit (no checks), and require all payments before service.


If you do not speak English, we encourage you to bring a friend or family member who does. However, if this is not possible or comfortable to you, we will have an interpreter for you. We have many languages available, but not every language at every time. If you arrive without an appointment, we may have a hard time finding an interpreter immediately.



Suggested Office Visit Fee (if no insurance). Yes this is suggested. You can pay more or less if you feel the need to. This pays for our time. You add this to most items below (once per visit), but the items below are all required (not suggested) because they cost us money to provide.
Pap smear and gyn (woman) exam, including lab cost for basic pap (88164). This is in addition to our regular visit charge (so total cost is $71). You may need more labwork than just a basic pap, depending on your personal history.

Vision Screening (if separate from a wellness exam)

Preventive counseling: 99401 (15min), 2 (30), 3 (45), 99404 (60).

Labs drawn and sent out - thousands of tests available.

We charge $35 for a basic set of tests, including chemistry, cholesterol, and diabetes. If you need more or different tests, we add up each test cost. Prices are low but vary depending on the test.
If you need other tests (more than the $35 basic labs), we charge $20 plus our actual cost of the tests.

Immunizations - Shots - Vaccines - Jabs

Vaccine administration fee. You do not have to pay this extra, unless you are a child who qualifies for VFC but not Medicaid (we rarely see this), or you are an adult who qualifies for shots from the Merck program. We record all shots in the state immunization registry

Adult Shots

1. If you have Medicaid or other insurance, you get these free.
2. Medicare only covers flu, pneumonia (ppsv23), and hepB (and zoster but not by an outpatient doctor).
3. CICP and uninsured have to pay these prices, but you may qualify to get some of these discounted to $25 (includes the $14 shot fee), based on your income (the ones with ***). This is handy for Green Card shots. Most adults need Varicella x2, MMR x2, Td x3 (one being TdaP), and flu if September-March. That is, you need MMR+Var+Tdap, then at least 1 month later MMR+Var+Td, then at least 6 months later Td (+ maybe flu); but you may not need to wait the 6 months for the last shot to apply for your card.
