Student Health Center???

Filed under: Uncategorized — dcdesi @ 2:48 am

Hubbys sick again. Decided to take him into the SHC at noon (student Health Center) and we were told there were no walk ins and that they were out of appointments for the day. No wonder UVA’s had student casualties with attitude like that from the SHC.

Then again the SHC is not unique in this attitude. THe state of the health system leaves much to be desired. In most cases then not, everytime I have needed a doc in an emergency, I’ve had to wait a few days. My reaction has been ” u want to kill the person before u agree to treat em”. Moral of the story – dont get sick in the US, B if you cant help it then plan on getting sick. First make an appointment for a few in advance and then fall sick 5 days later so that you can visit the doc within two days of falling sick.

over and out.
