I went to see the doctor for a totally unrelated thing and went home and soon after was down with a fever and flu. I think my immunity must be pretty weak, but that’s why I try to avoid visiting clinics unless it’s absolutely necessary. We always have to end up waiting for at least an hour. I have tried visiting empty clinics where there is no queue, but the doctors tend to have horrible bedside manners and prescribe ineffective medications. That explains the lack of a queue, I guess. That’s the conundrum for the time being. I am quite sure the waiting time is much longer in other countries just going by what I’ve seen in TV shows. Is that a true reflection?
I also wonder if I could have picked up the germs reading the magazines in the clinic. Although I do wash my hands pretty often. I sound like such a germaphobe right now.
It could also be that the weather has been so ridiculously hot recently (global warming), that going from the coolness of air-conditioning to the blast of heat outside could have triggered it off.
What’s your experience with clinics in Singapore? Would love to hear as I sneeze my head off.
