the health care situation in wilmington is bad and getting worse.CMH is now owned by a foreign company and we know
how well that works.Most of the doctors(I use that term loosely are quacks).So unless you're rich or have the very best health insurance they won't treat you,in fact they don't want to see you.So if you are sick or think you will
get sick with a terrible illiness your best bet is go to Columbus or Cleveland and live there.

I just moved to Wilmington.I can't get a doctor to accept me .I was shot in 1994 and have some problems from that so they won't take me.What am I suppose to do? I need my medicine and can't afford to go any where else.

I think there should be a law that doctors and hospitals cannot refuse to treat you. The only free clinic is opened on Thursdays and good luck getting in because all the fat and smokers are there taking up space.

fat? I hope your health never fails you and keeps you from exercising.I hope your never given medication that makes you gain weight no matter what you do.I hope God over looks your judgements of others when you make it to Heaven.

you don't have to exercise to keep your weight down. You just need to watch what you eat and how much. I know too many people who have diabetes because of their weight.

Simply not true. You need burn off calories to keep weight down. If you are not active you can not burn off the calories. I have been on a 1200 cal diet for years. I am paralyzed so I can't exercise. so I don't lose weight. Look into it you will find I am right.

Educate your self before you make sweeping comments. Or did you mean to insult have the country.Medication often causes weight gain. Most of us can maintain with diet but loss is next to impossible.I will tell my dietician you said she is doing it wrong.

The only solution is a good national health care plan.Not the one Obama tried to get passed but one
that will work but even that won't ensure quality
doctors who care about people instead of the bottom line-profits.Very few MDs who specialize actually
care for patients their primary goal is making as much money as they can.

that is so true, cant afford insurance because the doctors want as much money as they possibly can get. People dont become doctors to help anymore its to get rich.

There was a comment from a local doctors husband in the forum about telling his kids not to go into the medical field because they wouldnt be making much money under the national health care plan.

After all your real "professional" answers and attacks, and your lame "I am sorry" attempt, no wonder people are acting up. Do what you want, say what you want, attack in any way you see fit, and heckle anyone you want. Afterall, when everything is said and done, all you have to do is finish it off with an "I'm Sorry" and everything is just peachy! HUH?

There is no health care plan.People say a national health care plan
is socialism.Like social security,medicare,medicaid and all other
social programs on a national and local level.We need a good national health care plan.

I hear that the trainee program for doctors at Clinton Memorial, in Wilmington, is closing. They lost in Court, apparently, not sure what.

Yes. Exactly the doctors I want. Ones who don't make any money. There are smart people in the world and dumb people. There are hard workers and lazy a$$es. Don't punish smart people or hard workers for trying to better themselves. If you're against doctors making money then you're probably a dumb people type of person. If you work for minimum wage and have not had health care then you might fall into either category dumb or lazy people. Doctors get paid well because they are usually smart and get sued all the time because dumb and lazy people tend to not take care of themselves and want to blame someone else for their woes. Occasionally they do make true mistakes and they should pay for it. That's what the system is really there for. Sack up, break a sweat either working or exercising and quit complaining. Only you can turn this country around. And yes, paralyzed people can exercise and control what they eat. There is an event called the Paralympics where people who have the will power compete in events that some people who have all of their abilities can't even do. P.S. Yes the hospital was bought but last time I checked, Tennessee was not a foreign country.

Some people cant afford health care, you must be one of the smart people who are lucky enough to have a well paying job and be able to afford insurance. If I had to pay for insurance I would only take home a little over 300 a week, I still have to pay for utilities, food and housing.

Yes. Actually I consider myself both smart and hard working. Lucky? No. I don't play the lottery. Went to public school. Was prodded by my parents to get good grades. Went to college. Got a scholarship for about 10%. Paid off the remaining loans. Got a job with healthcare benefits. Now my insurance premiums have skyrocketed. Why? As the insurance salesman said "because insurance companies HAVE to provide coverage to people they didn't used to." Oh yeah, forgot the fact that I exercise everyday. And yes, I am thankful to God for my life and health. I guess the question I ask my self and the answer is usually no, do I feel sorry for others? No, I didn't have a rough childhood. But I know some who did. Some of those are in jail or working at a dead end job. Some of them decided they didn't want to live that life and made something of themselves. I wish we could isolate that can do gene and give it to everybody. We can't. So to you who brings home $300 a week, be thankful you can make that, and ask yourself, is this all I can do? America is the greatest country in the world because some bicycle salesmen in Ohio can build a plane. Because some guy in Illinois built a plow. Did they have everything? Absolutely not. But I will guarantee one thing. They didn't bitch because they didn't have health insurance.
