Sadly this is basically what happens.

I once had a doctor's office tell me that I had to wait a week to see him when I was sick. I asked them if I would be charged for missing the appointment if I died before it occured...

I also changed doctors immediately.

Changing doctors here is a multi-year event just as the vedio suggested.

That's actually not too bad, but parking would be free for the ER here.

So, what did you do to your eye??

I did nothing, my dad got a piece of rope in his eye when we were tying some boxes I shipped from Greece on the bed of my pick up truck.

There were people who waited longer then us, and the hospital was almost empty. We lucked out as there is only one Optometrist in the ER, and we were the only eye related injury that he needed to attend to. Wink
