No, you don't need to be a member but unless you have or know someone with a Holter set up, becoming a member is the least expensive way of doing an echo/holter and MHDPC does require a holter performed within 2 or 3 months before the date of the clinic when they will have the echo's done.
Associate membership (gets you everything except voting rights) is um--I think it's $25 but they might have raised it to $30. That gives you the right to borrow a Holter set up for a minimal fee--$60 or $65 which pays for the fee, the readout by Alba and a printed set of results which you then take to the clinic. The fee for the echo (which presently is being done by Katherine Atkinson, board certified cardiologist) is $225 (or that's what it was in June)--sometimes Mt Hood partially funds the echos for members to the tune of $100
Gets you a lot of value for that $25 or $30 membership fee. I think that echo's are running $450 and up with any of the 4 cardiologists in and around Portland these days.
Dr Wood and Dr Atkinson are both down toward Lake Oswego, just off I-5. North West Vet Specialties is off I-205 at the very north end of Clackamas County and there is another who is connected with a different Specialty group and I can never remember the names of either the last two. And there is a cardiologist connected to the small animal clinic at the vet school (Eugene)--I think Michelle sees that one.

|DogsR4Life||Does anyone have any other places that rent Holters? I was with NCSU for 4 years until last year when they over billed me and they refused to correct it.|
