The last few months I’ve been through numerous medical tests, and yesterday I had surgery.
I hear complaints all the time about the state of our health care system but I have to say, although I had to travel out of my community for two of the appointments, all my tests and procedures were booked and over with in record time.
In the course of about two months I had about seven different tests, four different doctors appointments and surgery.
Every effort was made to make it easy for me, including doing my pre-op over the phone. The doctors all communicated well with each other and all I needed was my health card.
One of the gentlemen in the outpatient surgery had a cataract removed. He said it was less hassle than going to the dentist and cost a lot less too.
Our system isn’t perfect of course, but it’s working pretty well despite efforts to destroy it.
Oh and if you’re interested everything went well and I should be fine.
Which is good news or bad depending on how you feel about me. 😉
