Of course in a market based health care system you as a doctor have every right to use the laws of supply and demand to design any revenue structure for yourself that you choose.
I would suggest that many (most?) here do not spend $4.11 on a coffee every day, I know I don't. Additionally, when you add the cost of basic health insurance to the $1,500 dollar fee, one is definitely paying a substantial fee for service, much more than a cup of coffee. But I say again, this is simply supply and demand.
Of course I don't know you as a clinician, perhaps if I did and lived in the USA I would determine your price to be appropriate. You would have to be very, very good AND I would have to be able to afford to pay for food, mortgage, retirement, savings, car, kids (and their health care) as well as multiple thousands a year for my higher than average health care expenses. I think you'll find that many of the patients who most require your skills will no longer be able to access them due to other obligations to themselves and their dependants that I listed above.
