My son a few years ago needed ACL surgery. He was hurt playing a pick up game of basketball. He might have been able to see a surgeon in eight weeks and had the surgery within a year. He could walk up the stairs but not down we went and had it done privately and it was the best choice I ever made. I worked hard my whole life and when our family needed the medical system it failed

My husband has miniscus and ACL injury, in chronic pain ... he will be lucky if he gets someone in the system to see him in a month, let alone do the necessary! We can’t even take him across the border because of COVID-19... so we will try to go privately here. This should not be happening.
