<table class="custom-table">
    <thead>
        <tr>
            <td>Type</td>

            <td>Price</td>
        </tr>
    </thead>
    <tbody>
        <tr>
            <td>Evaluation</td>
            <td>60 minutes</td>
            <td>$180</td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
            <td>Follow-up Visit</td>
            <td>45-60 minutes</td>
            <td>$110 per visit</td>
