Your Health

Your Health is hosted by Maureen Taylor. Episode twenty-five. Most Canadians accept the reality of waiting lists. We wait patiently to get in to see a specialist or to have that operation. But if you knew that the specialist you were waiting for was spending a lot of his time performing private, cosmetic surgery you might not be as understanding. But be careful before you blame your doctor. We took 2 types of eye surgery, one elective, one necessary, one public one private and found a study in contrasts. And, Maureen interviews Dr. Pete Sarsfield, Medical Officer of Health in Kenora, and Dr. Robert McKendry, author of "Physicians for Ontario: Too Many Too Few?" a report commissioned by the provincial government. Also this week, chemistry professor, Joe Schwarcz looks at Valarian.
