Sorry that you are in pain and that you are not getting in to see your GI Dr. sooner. Yes, I have heard this complaint before. I live in a city in Ontario where the Drs. prefer to work plus I've been in the medical system most of my Life, so mine know me well and call me back the same day, with a solution or helpful suggestions.
As mentioned, so many more People have moved to Canada in the last 10 years but didn't bring their Drs. with them unfortunately. We just don't have enough Drs. anymore and they are overwhelmed with Patients. That's two reasons.
Some Patients cancel their actual appointment and go on the cancellation list. So if someone else cancels their appointment, they give it to someone on the list who needs it sooner. I've never tried this myself.
Hopefully you will be taken care of very soon Hon.
Congrats on your 2 year QS anniversary.
