Below is a short email that my friend Sam posted this morning to his Facebook page about his surprisingly positive experience with the US healthcare system.
I thought it a fantastic read, and I wanted to pass it along to you:
I had to run to the emergency room today for what may be a neurological issue. Dizziness, staggering, loss of balance, that kind of thing.
I’m in San Diego, one of the most expensive cities in the world, and I have no insurance. I figured I was screwed.
But instead, the experience was unreal.
I got seen immediately. I didn’t even have time to sit down, they just whisked me into an examination room.
