What are they doing?
Remember I was mentioning Bea's problems with her Thyroid gland? Well, we are still waiting for an appointment with a specialist. It is now weeks ago that a request for an appointment was sent. And nothing is happening. Somebody is sitting on his hands again. The limitations of the Canadian Health System? Or has that become a problem in all universal health care systems over the world?
Whereever money is changing hands private medical centers can offer appointments in no time at all. But private clinics in the U.S. tend to be outrageous expensive as liability insurance accounts for a major part of the costs.
Now what about Mexico? Mexico's health system is way cheaper than in the U.S. and probably even in Canada.
Has anyone experience with such a problem in Mexico? We'd love to hear from you, as we might consider to escape the lengthy wait line in Canada. And we are not even waiting for a treatment but a simple diagnosis, which may be done in a single day.
We can foresee that it will take another month or even more after seeing the specialist until the report of the specialist will be available. Then more appointments for possible treatment...it can take years.
It makes us angry as it puts everything on hold. We'd love to try the Mexican alternative if there is any.
