We are hoping for a quiet, relaxing week but I would like to have a plan in place if necessary. Thanks!
    Can say from experience that everyone is professional and the care is excellent. Got cut on foot and had to go to ER for tx....cheap and good. I was amazed when I got to the window and I think the bill was like 50 bucks!!!
    Also girlfriend crashed a quad a few years ago and spent the whole week in the hospital there....great care...food not so much, but we were allowed to bring her meals......and the bill for all week was only 1200 dollars total !!!
    So long story short have no fear your husband will be in good hands....

    Made a quick trip to the ER for possible strep throat. Couldn't believe how great it was. In and out in 1 and 1/2 hours (would have taken at least 5 hours here at home). Total bill was $85.00 plus $40 for prescription. Doctor and the rest of the staff were wonderful. Taxi driver that took us to the pharmacy was super nice. All in all, a great experience - and I can't say that has EVER happened here in the States!
