Tale Of Two Doctors

Boy, this hits the nail on the head

Two patients limp into two different medical clinics with the same complaint. Both have trouble walking and appear to require hip surgery.

The FIRST patient is examined within the hour, is x-ray'd the same day and has a time booked for surgery the following week.

The SECOND sees his family doctor after waiting 3 weeks for an appointment, then waits 8 weeks to see a specialist, then gets an x -ray, which isn't reviewed for another week and finally has his surgery scheduled for 6 months from then pending the review board decision on his age and remaining value to society.

Why the different treatment for the two patients?

The FIRST is a Golden Retriever taken to a vet .

The SECOND is a Senior Citizen on Obama care...

In November if there is no change in government we'll all have to find a good vet.

That's how HMOs have been treating their customers for 30 or 40 years at this point.
