I'm an internist. I see about 30 people a day. I bill more then $50 for the typical office visit. It takes me on average 15 minutes per patient. 30 minutes for a new patient.
These are the average medicare reimbursements for various office visits. Level 2 visits are rare. It would be something like a 20 year old who comes in so you could look at their (barely) burned finger or something. Most of my visits are level 3. A fair number are level 4. you get a diabetic with a history of MI, and a little short of breath you have a level 4. Happens all the time.
