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.

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. Retiredbum 於 2020/11/21 21:38回覆

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。 Retiredbum 於 2020/11/20 12:28回覆
