What do you do when you can’t get in to see your doctor?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on September 21, 2008
“It depends how urgent the need is, but I would try to see if they had someone else who could see me or could suggest somewhere else I could go.”
“Tough it out and look stuff up online to self-medicate.”
“I don’t have health insurance, so the doctor isn’t my first choice. I usually go to the Douglas County Health Department.”
“I go to First Med. It’s always easy to see someone there, and they’re always pretty helpful. If it’s serious, I’d go to the hospital. Otherwise I just try to stick it out.”
