Charter Health Crowd

Absolutely disgusting health care system...

Dominique, Surrey, BC

January 21st, 2019


Saw my GP in March 2018 after a fall and related pain in knee and hip!Wwas told to go to see an orthopedic surgeon hopefully in the next 9 to 12 months! Still waiting in January 2019! I had an MRI and xray done (at my expense, not MSP) to try to speed things up and only got a referral for physiotherapy (Oasis) last October 2018.! the system must believe that I will croak before anything is done for my condition as I am turning 80 soon! A year ago I was still able to walk 3 or 4 miles daily, go to the gym/pool and HAD A LIFE! Absolutely disgusting health care system now, compared to 20 years ago when I had surgery for prostate cancer.!
