However, good health is not guaranteed, so we went to register at the clinic. It turns out they are not taking names for a waiting list. The receptionist was friendly, and explained that there were thousands of people in our situation but they had a system. On the day that you want to see a doctor, you go to the clinic in the morning and you will be given an appointment for after 2:30 p.m. No phone calls allowed.
Yes, the receptionist used the word thousands. As names are not taken, there are people who are not even counted.
