    Gee they must be doing something right. In the US it sucks even more if you live in a rural area. In the US to see a specialist is a long wait it not an emergency. Shortage of Doctors.
    ----------------------------------------------------------

    Sweden has the fifth-highest life expectancy in Europe and cancer survival rates are among the continent’s highest, according to 2017 OECD figures.

    But Swedes are frustrated over their universal healthcare, one of the main pillars of their cherished welfare state, with long waiting queues due to a shortage of nurses and available doctors in some areas.
    “Swedes have little confidence that politicians will solve this,” said Lisa Pelling, chief analyst at progressive think tank Arena Ide.

    They must be doing something right because they have long waiting times to get treated? Yeah, I suppose that would only make sense to you.


    I've never waited long to see a specialist. In fact, last year I had to make an appointment to see a gastroenterologist. I was able to get in and see him within three weeks and in another three weeks I was in the hospital having an upper endoscopy done and my condition remedied. In Europe, I'd have been lucky to even get in to the first appointment with the doctor in that amount of time. I have a friend in Germany who fucked his knee up and it took him three months to get it looked at.

    Yet another unintended consequence of Osamacare. Many small rural clinics closed because they couldn't afford to be compliant with the BS regulations Osamacare was forcing onto them. Many people who worked at hospitals lost their jobs, as well as doctors taking early retirements or refusing to take any more patients.

    Unintended consequences are a bitch, and the liberals in this country can't seem to figure it out.

    Or as it is written the grass is always greener over the neighbor's septic field.
