Waiting to Find a Family Doctor in Canada

In the 8/22/2011 Globe and Mail, Gloria Galloway reports on the "The soul-destroying search for a family doctor".

Basically, it took her years to find a primary care doctor who would accept her. And now she has a doctor, she will of course still have to deal with any waiting lists for complex care such as surgical procedures or MRI scans.

Again, "coverage" does not equal actual medical care...
