Area of medical need
Is there an area in the USVI in need of a primary care physician?
For what it's worth, Palliative Care/Pain Management and Geriatrics are areas I lean toward. Unfortunately, at least for now, a move to USVI got the spousal veto. I let her know that if she dies first that the USVI is where to haunt me. I showed the kids a few pictures and I think a straight up vote would lean toward the move, but it's hard to overturn a veto. I'll have to vacation there and let the area win her over.
I think this is something we need very badly on STX....I called to get an appointement a few weeks ago when I had a stomach flu and Dr. Bishop's office told me that there were no appointments for over a month and a half! They have walk-in but I don't have time for that...fortunately the flu went away eventually.
Never had a wait that short when I've seen Prassard. Even for the nurses. I like all of them and think they do their job but they are so slow. Its always been 2 or 3 hours without an appointment. With an appointment its more like an hour to hour and a half from the time I enter to about when I leave. Only go without an appointment if I feel horrible, and don't know what it is, like dengue. Otherwise with colds and flus I rather wait it out then wait in any doctors waiting room for that long.
Just curious... If your personal physician wanted you or a family member to receive a diagnostic ultrasound (thyroid, gallbladder, prostate, ovaries, etc), which would you prefer:
A. Go to Gov. Juan Luis Medical Center?
B. Go to the on-island Imaging Center?
C. Go to Puerto Rico or stateside?
D. Have the ultrasound done on-island at your personal physicians office?
