The Tale Of Two Doctors

Boy,  this hits the nail on the head 

Two  patients limp into two different medical clinics with the same complaint.  Both have trouble walking and appear to require hip surgery.  

The  FIRST patient is examined within the hour, is x-rayed the same day and has a time booked for surgery the following week. 

The  SECOND sees his family doctor after waiting 3 weeks for an appointment, then  waits 8 weeks to see a specialist, then gets an x-ray, which isn't reviewed  for another week and finally has his surgery scheduled for 6 months from then pending the review boards decision on his age and remaining value to  society. 

Why  the different treatment for the two patients? 

The  FIRST is a Golden Retriever taken to a vet.
The  SECOND is a Senior Citizen on Obama care... 
Give a lot of thought about the votes you cast in the upcoming election, or we all may be looking for a good vet.
