Typical headinyourass comment. People in Canada HATE their healthcare system because it takes months to see a doctor. Many Canadians come HERE for medical treatment. And ask any doctor, America is the best place in the WORLD for practicing, why do you think so many drs here are foreigners?
My ex BIL is a Canadian physician.
My sister had cancer treatment while living in Canada.
Canada has a list of conditions and ailments that they deem elective to treat. Some of those are ( or were) different from what US patients see as elective. The FDA has a variety of procedures which they do not allow but which Canada does.

The women who took thalidomide in the 1960's were medical tourists, usually to Sweden
