If you say Medicare they will tell you the first opening will be in six months to a year.
I you have excellent insurance, you will get in the next day and it's perfectly legal for them to do this.
BS,my mom is on Medicare & has no problem at all with getting an appointment when she wants to see her doctor. And get this she gets to pick the doctor that she wants to go to.
