Public do not understand the difference between GP and FP. Hence there is no difference in consultation charges. That’s the sad state of affairs in primary care currently which the College of Family Physicians have been trying to change, but have failed to change anything for the past 40 years.

Consultation fees can range from $15-50 depending on how much your patients are willing to pay.
$20/patient on average? 10 patients an hour. $200/hr or even more. Good.
