Charter Health Crowd

Cut the red tape and the waiting times, this is what I expect...

Garry, Okotoks, AB

December 31st, 2014


Waited for four years to have something done to ease the pain in my knee, offered shots that did nothing and cost me $200.00 per shot. Finally my knee would lockup and stay that way for lengthy periods of time. My doctor told me I was way to young for knee replacement (57) and nothing could be done and I should consider a knee brace.

I contacted the Cambie center was given a date to meet Dr Masri , had my evaluation done and was given a option for a surgery date. After my surgery I now can enjoy the things I used to do Backpacking, Kayaking and Biking.

This is how the Health System should work, cut the red tape and the waiting times, this is what I expect.

The Federal Government needs to look at this model and take note, it works and it works well.
