Long Wait Eh?

Today's New York Times has an article that once again points out that Canada's vaunted health care system ain't all that it is cracked up to be:

A recent government study indicated that 4.3 million Canadian adults — or 18 percent of those who saw a doctor in 2001 — reported they had difficulty seeing a doctor or getting a test or surgery done in a timely fashion. Three million Canadians are unable to find a family physician, according to several private studies, producing a situation all the more serious since it is the family doctor who refers patients to specialists and medical testing.

Medical tests and surgery in a timely fashion? Overrated.
