      Re: They Paid It!

      "Myectomies would not be performed elsewhere in the world as they are in the US. "

      Sorry Midge, I beg to differ. I live on Ontario, Canada. I was seen at the Hypertrophic Clinic at the Toronto General Hospital, which is a world-renowned cardiac teaching hospital.

      I was seen by the head of the clinic, Dr. Wigle in August. We decided to try medications, this did not work and I had my myectomy in February. I did not pay one cent, nor did I have to wait any longer than was necessary for my condition. This was not isolated incidence.

      I unfortunely, have gone have to many other serious health problems. Unrelated to my heart. I figure I am into the Ontario Health Insurance Plan for about half a million dollars, for which I have always received, prompt, professional and FREE health care.

      Thank you.
