Something needs to be done about the R.I. health care system. The hospitals are terrible. The wait times are outrageous, and they give you minimal care.

I have been very sick for about six months now and I am getting no answers. Not even the primary care doctors can give me an answer. This is because they can only spend 15-20 minutes with their patients, the goal is to see as many patients in a day as possible, instead of taking the time to spend with each patient.

It is ridiculous to me. The old-time doctors would examine you, and then sit and explain things to you, and make sure you got the proper care you needed. What is going on these days?
