I was introduced to the medical system here through a sore throat that wouldn't go away. Yep, infection. Went to a (private) clinic, saw the doc within 10 minutes, poked around my throat with a couple of instruments, prescribed my some anti-biotics, and suggested I follow up at a (again, private) hospital for a more detailed test. No questions about guns or beating up on my wife, just a one on one about what was bothering me.
The sore throat is completely gone. If I follow up with the more detailed test, tomorrow, I will be out a little over $200, all in. Life is good.
