Healthcare

Do doctors only work 20 hours a week after they finish residency? Maybe they are so burned out after 4 years of pre-med, 4 years of medical school and 4 more years of residency, that once they get to the promised land of medicine, they must exercise their rights and work only part-time and leave early every day..

I am counting vets in this, too.

I had to call 5x to make an appointment with a vet, because he would leave the office every single day by 2:00 pm.

In addition, I've been trying to see a specialist and basically, the specialist is only available on Tuesday mornings and Friday afternoons. Yes, he only works 2 half days a week. Can you believe that?!?!

Okay, maybe I am being mean and this particular specialist also works at another hospital.. but, still.. how many more could he or she be at?

Healthcare really blows in the U.S.!!
