Reid couldn't visit with a Canada ortho doc as the waiting period was too long.


Which is exactly what almost always happens when you show up with a non-urgent problem. You get put on a waiting list. If you google the waiting list you receive ads from private clinics that will do it much quicker for a price. One clinic told me I could fly to Toronto early morning, get picked up and delivered to their first class facility to have my double hernia repaired, stay one night in their bed and then get taken to the airport to fly back to Halifax the next morning! They never mentioned the price.

Since I had nothing special going on I decided to let my very nice young surgeon (Dr. Watson no less) do the job in Windsor NS (45 minute drive) that bumped me up in the queue from Halifax wait times by about 40 days IIRC.
