I'm currently reading a book "Buffoonery", by an
experienced and very witty nurse. And if this
has any reflection of truth about hospital life,
I would say, count your blessings that you can
get 5 minutes of quality time with your doctor. And remember that thousands of people in underdeveloped countries, are dying from diseases with absolutely no medications or medical attendance. Just go to WHO to check out the situation in these countries.
There may be an exception for very wealthy
people who have private doctors-- the Queen
of England, I imagine has many specialist attendants, and can be expected to live for a very long time in good health.
