I spent much of today sitting around waiting at one of the city health centers. Because it was my first visit, I had to wait in one more line than the regulars for them to create a medical file. (When they asked my source of income, I had to explain what a blog was.)
Still, I saw a doctor today — for $5. I’m getting my blood pressure medication refilled, for free. I’m getting blood tests this week, also for free.
The place was a lot less depressing than I’d thought it be, and a lot less crowded. They have a mental health clinic, and a dental clinic. So we have some minimal options out there, at least.
