When i get sick in Argentina, as long as it is not too serious i wait until i am back in Australia or at work in South Africa to see a doctor or a dentist etc.My mother inlaw suffered some very serious burns last year - the doctor in the burns ward told her to put vaseline on it. They don't make good things in Argentina - and that includes Doctors. Even if you have a lot of money you can't buy a first world education or first world health care or first world anything there. Argentines will tell you that you can - but that is because they don't know what a first world education/doctor/service/product looks like.

I have had fantastic medical care here in Buenos Aires. Including a 5 day hospital stay, I've been very impressed.

I have also had a horrible experience at my small town hospital back home where I was judged for getting my extreme chemical burns in a drunk state, as if I deserved what I got and was told to go home and use neosporin. We went to a big city hospital and were told I would have ended up with my entire back being infected and a painful recovery had I listened to them. So there's great and there's bad everywhere.

Your statement must be a joke . Its a bad joke!

I have taken treatment here for 5 years with zero complaints towards the medical system. If I fall sick in US, I wait to return to BA for treatment.

During this long process I met many other bright and talented foreign docs who didn't pass the exam and got to deliver pizzas for a living. Even if they wanted to they could not take lesser positions such as nurse practitioner, the system prevents this. The whole process sucks and you will gain a first hand vision of what a useless retrograde organization the AMA really is. Be supportive, she will need it.
Correct, so we figured that she could work at a lesser position, such as a nurse or whatnot, but no...you have to have a license for that. In order to get a license you have to go to school for 2 years and she's already gone to school for 12 in addition to her residency. You need a license for this, you need a license for that. It's just a no win situation if you've been educated abroad despite the fact that I'm sure she could run circles around a lot of folks here in the US. She can't even be a doctor's assistant because that too requires a license. It's just sad.

Anyhow, my wife won't be delivering any pizzas, I promise you that. Looks like we'll be starting another business...at least those licenses we can buy.

My wife didn't either. Excellent move on the business. Screw the AMA they are a bunch of self righteous f...tards. OK. Now have her sit back and watch the fun. In 4 years they will be kissing her ass and begging her to jump on board.
