When you pay for a job, you pay not only for the work materials, but also:
Time to go
Safety and security
No one can denigrate other people’s work by judging prices.
Only by knowing all the elements necessary for the production of a certain work can you estimate the actual cost.
Totally apt for the medical profession of today.
