A tale of two doctors

Published:

Two patients limp into two different  doctors' offices with the same complaint: Both have  trouble walking and may require hip surgery.

Patient 1. is examined  within the hour, is x-rayed the same day and has a time booked for surgery  the following week.

Patient 2. sees his  family doctor after waiting 3 weeks for an appointment, then waits 8 weeks to  see a specialist, then gets an x-ray, which isn't reviewed for another week  and finally has his surgery scheduled for 6 months from then,  pending  the review boards decision on his age and remaining value to  society.

Why the different  treatment for the two patients?

The FIRST is a Golden  Retriever taken to a vet.

The SECOND is a Senior  Citizen on Obama care.

In November, if there  is no change in government, we'll all have to find a good vet
