Roll up the Rim and say ah

Roll up the Rim and say ah
That wouldn't be a bad idea in Calgary. Getting a familly Dr. is like playing the lotto. Anyone else had problems getting a Dr. in Canada or else where?

It is funny that you posted this... I have not had a doctor in 5-6 years. I called up Steph's Doctor last month and he would not accept me :( It's crazy! Normally when you get married they take on the spouse. What if Steph was to have a baby... would we have to find another doctor for the kid??? To make a long story short… both of us are now going to the Doctor in Bridlewood.

If you need a Doctor, I believe he is still accepting new patients. Give me a call and I'll give you the phone number.

It takes about five years here to get a steady family doctor.

The sad part is that, despite the shortage of doctors, our system is still quite keen on weeding out (suing or revoking the licenses) of doctors who refuse to do abortion referalls, prescribe the morning-after pill, or prescribe the the standard pill.

I was very fortunate to find a family doctor so soon after arriving in Calgary, but everyone else I know has had trouble. Anyone who moves cities seems to have a lot of trouble too. I heard of one family who, after moving to a different city, still drives 3 hours to the old city so they can keep the original family doctor because they have been unable to find a new one.
