Six months for a heart examination PDF Print E-mail

PALERMO - Six months for a heart examination, four months for ultrasound and three months for an eye examination. In the past, when patients protested for the long time of waiting, the nosocomial had always replied that the patients, except in emergencies, have to contact their local health unit (ASP) to undergo an examination.

But the truth is that we have to wait also at ASP. As has happened to Calogero Concialdi, he can do a echodoppler on February 9. But after having reserved it in August. Six months of waiting. And it is a fundamental examination to verify the correct functioning of the heart. "It's outrageous - says Concialdi - especially for people like me who suffer from dyslipidemia with medical treatment and periodic inspections".

The Asp argues that the demands are so many. About case of the echodoppler relieved by Calogero Concialdi, the company announced: " we enhance the service for cardiac exams in Lercara where the service has high demand".
In a notice, the company made it known that "
was provided an increase of six hours per week in the specialized branch of cardiology. But - have said from the ASP, referring to the delays in delivery of exam results - if the doctor marks on the request that the examination is urgent, knock down waiting lists".
