Your friend should go back to the doctor immediately, and if he can't find the problem - go to another.
If you were in Canada dealing with socialized medicine, the only difference would be that you could visit 10 different doctors on the same day getting
multiple opinions, all at no cost. You also wouldn't need to worry which one accepted your particular insurance policy.
And yeah, if it is a small town with few doctors who can't diagnose the problem, a trip to the city might be in order.
