Cost I agree on. If I couldn't get into a doctor on a sunday, I would be losing a days pay for not working, and losing another days pay to pay the doctor. A week in the hospital cost pops about as much as it would cost to buy a brand new BMW. Costs are crazy.
I am still having a hard time seeing the wait times as accurate though. I know lots of people in NY and CT, both insured and uninsured, no one is waiting 6-61 days to see their regular doctor.
Just a thought I had. Most people I know in NY are not in the city, mostly places like putnam and westchester county, and farther north, maybe that has something to do with it. Although my doctor was in the Bronx, and I always got in the same day I called so I am not sure.
I take it you are not american or in america by the whole ur doing it wrong thing?edit on Thu, 23 Jan 2014 01:29:33 -0600 by TKDRL because: (no reason given)

The study linked was split up though. The one I was commenting on was supposed to be for a non-emergency visit to the family practice, which I assume would be the same as a GP.
