Was I just scammed?
I went to an urgent care clinic because of my suspected cubital tunnel syndrome. I had to pay $55 up front and sat around for 2 hours before the "doctor" came to see me. She touched my arm a few times and explained the cause then told me that I would have to see an orthopedic doctor. She was going to prescribe me ibreprofien. She talked to me for 5 minutes then left.

I feel like I was cheated. Is there a way I can get my money back because my entire visit was a waste of time.
The orthopedic doctors that she recommended were not even covered my by insurance.

No you weren't scammed. Doctors in those sorts of clinics aren't familiar with conditions that don't affect a lot of people. You were sent to a specialist because that's who can help you. The money you paid was because they're open and available outside of times that you'd normally be able to see a doctor, therefore they charge more because the doctor doesn't want to be there either.

well the healthcare system is fucked up, but dude - doctors can't know what your problem is before they see you. That up front fee is for their time and expertise at discerning the issue, it's not the doc's fault that your problem needed a specialist.
