Best Place to See a Doctor for $39 - 2006
It may not be ideal from a traditional doctor's point of view, but the recent trend of mini-offices in drugstores is often the only option for people without health care. Locally, Farmacia Remedios caters proudly to Spanish-speaking clients, but the large shop's friendly workers make it easy for anyone to visit. That's the point, after all: Should it really be so difficult to see a doctor regardless of who you are, where you're from, or what language you speak most comfortably? Here, for a base rate of just under 40 bucks, you can get an appointment on the spot. Popular services include emergency contraception, blood pressure checks, and free blood glucose screenings, but the store also offers traditional medicinal herbs, religious items, and imported candies not found at English-only drugstores.
