Health care act is flawed, but it’s the best we have

April 10, 2014
The Marietta Times

After experiencing our health care system within the past couple weeks, I believe we need more family-practice doctors in order to see our doctor in a more timely manner. With the expansion of Medicaid making access to health care more accessible to more people, all of our doctors will be inundated with even more patients which will result in even longer waits for an appointment. The walk-in clinics fill this niche nicely since you can walk in and be seen within 1 to 2 hours the same day. My problem could have been solved if I had gone to the walk-in clinic or been able to email my doctor rather than trying to contact my doctor by phone. I waited too long, ended up in the ER and then had to be admitted to the hospital.
