"Band aids or take a pill of your choice"

It takes weeks to get an appointment with a doctor. Which leads to underwhealming results.

They advised my wife that she had a slipped disc in her back, they avoided treating it; just gave her crazy pain killers for a month, so out of frustration we took her to a chiropractor who pretty much fixed her in one brief session. That was three years back, but we tend to avoid using the practice, there is never a good result. Currently we have spent a week trying to get an appointment for a two week severe headache we are waiting for a callback after initially calling 4 days ago.

I think it's time to try to contact someone who cares.

As for section 4. May was my last visit, but getting an appointment is difficult.
