Doctor, Doctor Give Me The News...

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.

On our news programme (only yesterday) I was listening to Obama talking about how he wanted to make reforms.


Chris: Of all the places in the world, if someone is seeking the very best medical care where do they go? The good, old U.S.A.

We should not aspire to be like countries with nationalized medicine. Nationalized anything just spreads mediocrity. We must continue in striving to be the very best. - Amen
