(From The Monitor (Uganda) - AAGM)
Byline: Muniini K. Mulera
When a joint in my left thumb succumbed to the ravages of age last week, I made an appointment to see my doctor, a specialist in adult medicine who works at the very hospital where I work. His secretary gave me the earliest appointment that was available, which was a week from the day I called her.
I arrived 15 minutes before my appointment, presented my Ontario Health Insurance Plan [OHIP] card to the secretary, took my seat next to a lady who was also waiting to see the doctor.
Moments later, another lady exited the doctor's examining room, followed by the good doctor, who acknowledged my presence with a hello and a smile, before inviting the lady next to me to follow him.
