Survey used small and biased samples on Canadian patients’ waiting times, say health policy experts

    Low-hanging fruit - no one can be forced to fill in any survey.

    In 2013 I had a herniated disk... It took 3 months to see a neurosurgeon and I was told that, using the public system, it would be 18 months to 2 years before I got an operation..... Since I was in extreme pain and could not work easily I paid the $13,000 to THAT very same neurosurgeon to have the procedure done in 3 weeks.

    My daughter was suffering from an incredibly debilitating digestive track problem, which doctors are still unable to resolve. We were given an 8 month wait time to see the gastro specialist. I managed to cut that short to two weeks by asking the right questions.

    The incredibly long wait times are a fact of life unless you have cancer.....
