In the comments to one of my (many) healthcare posts, a frequent commenter suggested that my description of the lengthy expected wait time for an appointment with my physician was unusual. Maybe not so much.
Take a look at this study of apppointment wait times. The conclusions I draw from it are that we need a lot more primary care physicians and that the reform plans currently on the table will serve to aggravate what’s an already bad situation.
Also, you might want to watch this amusing take on the study (in Legos), where I found the link.
