A general Check Up takes a Lifetime in Canada!!!!!
I finally found a family doctor that is accepting new patients, however my visits were a nightmare i visited the doctor twice to get a general health and to date i have to schedule a 3rd appointment, my 1st appointment was to complete my file(name address and purpose of visit-10 mins), then i was asked to schedule another appointment for the health check, on the 2nd appointment a pap smear was done (10 mins) and i was asked to schedule another appointment for the health check .... how long does it take to complete a general health check in Toronto??? I'm assuming i will have to get urine & blood tests done does this mean i have to schedule separate appointments for each of these tests.... If i was seriously ill i would be dead by the time this doctor discovered my illness. I'm appalled at the way these doctors operate here, I'm new to canada , just started a job and i can't get time off for every visit...is this the norm or am i being pushed aroung here???05 Ago 2006, 04:31 Anonymous
That's the way it's done here. You have to visit a seperate specialist for everything and nothing is ever on time or done the same day.
You can go private and visit a wellness center. http://www.findprivateclinics.ca/Natural_Medicine/Wellness_Centers/205-0.html
I like the concept of wellness centers. Everything is under 1 roof, you take 1 day off work and avoids many frustrations. The only downfall is the price but every service comes at a price.Anonymous 04 Ott 2006, 09:13 - Denuncia
