I'm not sure about $8,999, but that's probably pretty close. I've seen $7,000 for the first appointment, and $1500 for a phone call. Dr. Klimas has a better track record -- actual recovered patients, or patients recovering -- than Dr. Cheney, for a much lower cost. Not to mention other 'no-name docs around the country.
I've never, ever heard of a single patient of Cheney's who has gone into remission or has recovered, but they may be out there of course.
