    I learnt long ago that THE INTERNET IS THE BEST DOCTOR IN TOWN..:)
    With it, you can research your ailments, join forums for fellow sufferes to compare notes, look up treatments and medications etc, then you can visit your doctor knowing more about it than he does, and keep tabs on him to make sure he's giving you the right treatment and right meds, haha.
    PS- One guy said that he told his doctor that he'd researched his condition on the net, but the doctor wasn't too pleased, so it's best to not let on to the quacks..:)

    I went to the Doctors in London a couple of times. They were quite good for colds and stuff. When my dad went his ailment got worse. Had to go to France for proper treatment. The French doctor was livid with the way dad's infected wound had been treated.

    I prefer to let the quacks strut their stuff. I nearly self diagnosed a very rare genetic condition once....and then broke down laughing. I was quite amused.

    Those who wanted to pay for their healthcare instead of insurance were fucked.

    Which is total bullshit.

    The average bankruptcy that is quoted is over less than $20,000, the cost of a new car (and even then not a very good one).

    And there is no way to know how much of that is due to medical bills.

    This is one of the greater lies of the left.

    Just like the Harvard's study (which many statiticians called a stretch) that said 47,000 people die every year from lack of health insurance....even though they can't produce the bodies.

    The left is totally full of shit.

    Not to mention $6,300 to pay your up front premiums.

    It's a fucking mess.

    Now you are talking about health ins. Up front premiums, welcome to the real world.
