How To Fix Healthcare In America

Here is MY SUGGESTION to help end the insanity that is our Health Care system in America. Hey Obama are you listening?????

I went to the clinic last year because I had a sinus infection. No doubt. I have had them before and will have them again. It was without a doubt a REALLY BAD sinus infection.

So....I went to the clinic. Uninsured, since no "real" doctors will see me without insurance. Told them this exactly,"I have a sinus infection. I need a z-pack NOW and I'll be out of here in 3 minutes."

They insisted I see a doctor. After 2+ hours I saw the doctor, he looked up my schnozz, agreed with me that I had a sinus infection (DUH!!!) and he tried to prescribe some anti-biotic that I was allergic to(which was in the myriad of paperwork they made me fill out). I said..."Just give me the sulfa based one." He did. Our love affair lasted less than 4 minutes.

They charged me $250.00. Plus 20 bucks for the pills. All 10 of them.


Kill the bureaucracy and use common sense.
