I never hesitate to consult a doctor in France. It's not the absolutely perfect system that Michael Moore imagined in Sicko, but it is one in which I was hospitalized for 3 months, have undergone years of physical therapy, and my medical bill comes to about 50 USD a year. In addition, as I have a chronic condition, I can see the doctor, including specialists, for free. This has helped me to better manage the terrible life change that serious illness brings, and as a result I made a better recovery and returned to the workforce.
