Ecuador dentists and doctors cost much less than in North America… yet there is something more about the dental – medical system in Ecuador. The system allows Ecuador dentists and doctors enough time with patients to express their care.
May I explain.
A reader just sent me this note about Ecuador dentists and doctors.
Gary, I moved to Quito in retirement three weeks ago. I had occasion to need a doctor yesterday and was surprised to find that he did home visits, something long forgotten in most of North America. As it turned out, he was not an ordinary doctor. He was a very special person as well. This doctor is head of internal medicine and hemotalogy at a Quito hospital; but due to his love of people, he takes time to do house calls. When he arrived we sat and chatted to get to know each other, in Spanish with the occasional English word thrown in. Then he did his medical check, etc. I felt that I was with a caring human being who was a doctor. I can only remember such a thing almost 60 years ago in the little country town I lived in. Let me say that I feel well cared for. Best wishes,
Ecuador dental and medical practices suit Merri and me perfectly.
My mom is 86 and has been a true blue allopathic patient her entire life. She has always believed in the American medical establishment.
Now that system is letting her down. She has been in and out of the hospital for the last month. The health insurance that she has paid for has trapped her in a truly horrible, disjointed, unconnected, non caring system where the treatment she has received has actually diminished her health. The hospitalization has left her more ill than the original problem.
The total lack of continuity and care clashes with the note above about the care of Ecuador doctors and dentists. The system she has is so bad that for weeks no one doctor ever saw her twice in a row.
The hospital has made so many mistakes, has been so uncaring and so disorganized… that my daughter and sister have made sure that a family member with her 7-24. We are afraid to leave her in the hospital alone!
When my son-in-law emailed the picture above of my mom and our grand daughter, Sequoia, I realized that Sequoia and the entire family being with her…. our care is the most powerful medicine mom has been getting.
Care heals! Care is the glue that holds the healer – patient relationship together and makes the difference between a place of healing and a cold, hostile, dangerous atmosphere.
We have regular comments from readers who use Ecuador doctors and dentists. They are so surprised not only at the low cost… but the care!
This is not to say that all Ecuador dentists and doctors care. There are some bad Ecuador doctors and dentists like anywhere else in the world.
This is not to say that most North American dentists and doctors do not care. The majority of doctors and dentists in the US do care!
Yet American patients and practitioners alike are stuck with many negatives in the system that neither can do much about. Nor can it seems the politicians help either. American health care reform has been stalled for decades and the problems are likely to grow as 60 million baby boomers retire.
Ecuador’s dental and medical system is not so influenced by the problems that the US has with pharmaceuticals, litigation and insurance.
Don’t get me wrong. There are plenty of pharmaceutical and surgical procedures used in in Ecuador. Yet these modalities are not so overwhelming in the medical system.
Perhaps it is because the majority of Ecuador’s population are indigenous. Their culture has relied much more on lifestyle healing rather than symptom intervention. Perhaps this makes most of Ecuador’s medical profession more open to alternative and complimentary healing modalities.
Health insurance is not the norm… so the medical system is not stuck with insurance adjusters as middlemen between the patient and healer. This leaves Ecuador dentists and doctors with more time to spend with patients rather than paperwork.
There is very little malpractice litigation in Ecuador so MDs and dentists are not stuck with the huge insurance premiums that can force US doctors and dentists to crowd in more patients.
No system is perfect. Humanity’s growing population and the Western materialistic lifestyle rewards systems. So most of the time we are stuck with systems for almost everything we do… including health care.
The best way to enjoy health care is to avoid it… yet when we cannot it is good to know that in Ecuador, the health care practitioners do care.
