Right. And perhaps a more dangerous type of wait than the "waiting list for hip surgery" in the "Canadian system" that some seem so paranoid about in these parts.

And Meadbh, where ya' been? It's been rough being the only one on call around here .

I go to the doctor once every 5 years like clock work weather I need it or not. So far they don't really do anything, pap test, diabetes test, mammogram but no medicine or anything. Glad I didn't waste time or money going more often, I will be 60 next April so will go again, maybe I will get a colon test this time. I have good insurance they pay 100% for preventative medicine like pap test and mammograms but if you are actually sick they make you pay $250 so I avoid getting sick.
