All Is Well

18 April 2012
You’re looking at a happy camper. Luperon has been good so far. First thing I did was go to a doctor to have him look at my ears, which have been problematic for a month or so. They didn’t have the right equipment here, so I had to go to Puerto Plata, to a big hospital. I just walked in, pointed to my ears and sat down to wait. 20 minutes later I was being examined, another 20 minutes to clean them out, $ 60 for the visit and I left. They even gave me the tool they used, so I can do it myself next time. The pharmacy was next door, and they filled the prescription for the drops, even gave me extra. No one ever asked my name, my insurance info, my HMO, my political leanings, drug test, urine sample ... Funny how a country as backwards as the DR is so much better for public health.
