I spent nine hours yesterday afternoon at Zhengxin Hospital, waiting for my turn to have a medical inquiry on my heart problem.  Previously, my family doctor referred me to a cardiologist of the hospital for further check and advises, but the appointments of the day had been full (as well as all other days available of the month).  So I gave the nurse the referral from my family doctor and she put me on the list as an additional outpatient: the last one, #256.  Goodness me, no!

In the interim, I went out and walked along the bunk path on either side of the long, winding ditch beside the hospital for nearly an hour.  It is a not bad residential area in Taipei city, particularly for its adjacency to the hospital and another famous one: Vetran Greneral.

Time was approaching eleven PM when finally my turn came.  The doctor, looked a little tired, patiently asked questions from his last outpatient of the day: me.  He could not determine the next step I should take now according to the existing information of examination reports, so he arranged an appointmnet of myocardial perfusion SF (I have no ideal of what it is; maybe it is kind of blood flow test), and another round for me in December.

醫療重點在於品質,不是金錢,不是時間,

台灣健保貌似方便,品質參差不齊,好醫生不容易活,忙死。

藥物都是台製,許多根本無用,為何台北「非健保」診所越來越紅?

就像美國一樣,一分錢一分貨,便宜絕無好貨。

加拿大醫療最好,既便宜品質又高,唯一缺點,不能隨便看醫生,

非經家庭醫生轉診,不能上大醫院看專科醫生,開刀也沒得選。

台灣人喜歡貨比三家,藥越多越好,都不喜歡加拿大醫療體系。

Thanks for your comments. Well, I think the combination of quality, affordability, and accessibility in medical care is hard to come by everywhere in the world. Retiredbum2020/11/21 21:38回覆

台灣醫療就像工廠生產線,流水一般一人操作數秒,

數秒醫生,數秒檢驗,數秒開藥,數秒吃藥,數秒心安,

賺錢效率一流,醫療品質三流,醫生如同作業員,還兼業務,

翻看一下藥物,幾乎都是台製,真是厲害!

在台灣任何白天時段,各大醫院都跟菜市場一樣。 但在美國,費時花錢,在大陸(大城市)除了人多,還高度資訊化,也會整死我們這些老人家。 Retiredbum2020/11/20 12:28回覆
