Exclamation Canadian Doctor admits, on Bernie Sanders' show, bad detail about Canada's healthcare

So politician and single payer advocate Bernie Sanders runs his own political talk show and decided it was time to dedicate time to healthcare.

He advocates a "Medicare for All" system that he previously admitted would bankrupt the US economy. So he invited in a prominent Canadian doctor by the name of Dr. Danielle Martin, an associate professor at the University of Toronto and vice president medical affairs and health system solutions at Womens College Hospital in Toronto.

I think she slipped up a bit and admitted something that Sanders probably didn't want to reveal when she stated:

Quote:
If I have a patient whos got migraines and I need advice about how to manage it, they might wait several months to see a neurologist for a non-urgent problem like that, Martin said. Or non-urgent surgeries, the classic example being a hip or a knee replacement.

So how long will it take me in the average? Sanders asked.

It depends on where you are in the country. Sometimes its a few months, sometimes its a year. In some places, its sometimes its been even longer than that, that people wait for a hip or a knee replacement.
It should be noted that in Canada, according to other sources, including Townhall, that over 1,000,000 Canadians cannot even find a General Practice doctor, let alone specialists in many fields.

Hey, sounds great, let's bring that system here ASAP

Hey, Germany pays for it's people's health care.
I'm certain that would work here. Just have Germany pay for our health care!

Friends of mine's father is now on life support in Canada. Life long diabetic, otherwise healthy but needed a hip replacement. After a year on the wait list and taking pain killers he developed an bleeding ulcer that triggered a whole series of traumatic events.

The sad thing is that "rich" people in Canada don't wait - they just go to the US.

I live in Arizona, every year we see many Canadian tourists coming here to pay for medical care out of their own pockets. https://www.usnews.com/news/best-countries/articles/2016-08-03/canadians-increasingly-come-to-us-for-health-care
I don't know it is possible now (with the tighter border restrictions), but people (from U.S. as well as Canada) used to go to Mexico, same (prescription) drugs there as here. A lot cheaper and easier to get.
