A local waiting list
A friend took her one year-old daughter to the pediatrician yesterday. Baby is developing a little slower than normal and the pediatrician suggested having her evaluated for language development at Children’s Hospital in Boston. The mom told me she took the first available appointment –in mid-February, almost seven months away! Keep in mind this is an upper middle class family with private health insurance.
Maybe they should go to the UK or Canada to speed things up?July 27, 2006
