I prefer to see doctors in the big city (L.A.) when I have the luxury of scheduling appointments. Doctors in my town are fine; but typically the very best practice in the big city. A cousin was directed to have a mastectomy while the L.A. doctor prescribed a lumpectomy. The drive is a drag; but the proper diagnosis is worth it.
My health insurance is a wonderful benefit that I have earned that enables me to go where I want, when I want. If government gets hold of health care, can I expect the same service I receive at the DMV? IRS? Social Security? Post Office? If yes is the answer, I wonder if I could request Dr. Howard, Dr. Fine, Dr. Howard. At the very least, I could be entertained.
