At Montana Dermatology, we believe transparent pricing is the only way to be compassionate and honest caregivers. Your health should be in your hands, and you should know your price.


We use time-based billing for medical and surgical appointments, just like most other professional services. We only accept payment for services prior to or at the time they are rendered. We do not accept insurance, Medicare, or any other method of delayed payment. Transparent, direct pricing means we charge exactly what we say we do. As we are not a concierge practice there is no membership fee.

When you call to schedule, we will help estimate how much time you need and schedule you accordingly. Scheduled appointment lengths are estimates–your visit may be a bit longer or shorter based on your needs. Charges for your visit(s) are based on the actual time you spend with Dr. Buster. After the starting visit time (zero to fifteen minutes), visits are priced in 5 minute increments. For example, if seen for 12 minutes, that is classified as a 15 minute visit. See below table and examples for further details. We have medical visits based on time. Prices include simple procedures such as curetting small benign lesions (e.g., warts). Most patient visits are between 15 and 30 minutes. Full-body skin exams typically require 20 to 30 minutes.
