don’t need no doctor?

I moved into my apartment about 3 years ago. I decided to find a local family doctor, rather than drive an hour to see my old one, where my parents live. Okay. So I make appointments with her, and so forth. Last time I tried to, they said they couldn’t make an appointment, because she is only doing walk-in work at that clinic for the next little while, I think they said a month. So I just walked in with no appointment and saw a random doctor.

So do I really have a “family doctor” if she won’t take appointments? Have I been punk’d by the Ontario health care system? I heard of people not being able to find a family doctor but I never thought it would happen to me. Wait! Where’s my extra health care tax thingy going? Hmph!

    i never understood really how a family doctor differs from any other doctor who you “walk in” to regularly? what’s a family doctor got that noone else does?
