I have chronic conjunctivitis and I am basically forced to wait for 2 months to see an ophthalmologist. I decided to go to USA to see an ophthalmologist and now my conditions are getting better. It is evidently clear that there are flaws in our healthcare system. Why can't Canadians choose what doctor or which hospital to go? Why don't we get rid of referrals so that we are able to see specialists when needed.
