All the President’s Polyps…

San Francisco physician Margot Kushel delivered this succinct message to President Bush in today’s NY Times’ Letters to the Editor:

Mr. Bush: one cannot get a preventive colonoscopy in the emergency
room.

In case anyone missed it, earlier this month, the President insensitively remarked:

“I mean, people have access to health care in America. After all, you justgo to
an emergency room.” — President George W. Bush (Cleveland,7/10/07)

Of course. We can’t all get presidential health care. But we can get preventive care — like the President did on Saturday (does that mean it was a house call?) which eventually resulted in the extraction of five (!) polyps.

Well said, Dr. Kushel.

Health Access California promotes quality, affordable health care for all Californians.
