I'm confused about the 507 PS fast.. I was mainly referring to a docs speed as far as waiting and waiting in the docs office or ER

Well, we do suck in the US as far as health care benefit per dollar and health care benefit per capita, but if you ever spent a day tracking an ER doc or an urgent care doc, you might revise your opinion.
Your waiting time is related to overutilization of the specific health care situation rather than time spent with patients. The docs see a lot of patients in a very short amount of time. The problem is the number of patients that come to the ER or urgent care for things that could be easily managed by a primary care physician. Also many of the patients feel entitled to see a doctor for something that most people in the world just deal with (finger tip cut off? deal with it, it's gone already. Whiskey's on the sideboard. Headache? If you have no neurological deficits, it won't kill you, move on. Got the shits? eat better food).

If we could reallocate the funds to pay for patients with chronic illnesses to see a primary care physician regularly regardless of their employment status, they wouldn't clog up the ERs.
A diabetic could see a regular doctor 4-5 times a year and get their medications for a couple thousand dollars and control their disease. Instead, we tell them to take a hike because we are not socialists. Then, when they end up in diabetic ketoacidosis, we spend (yes the taxpayers pay a lot of it and also insurance rates go up like Anthem) several thousands of dollars a day to take care of them in the ICU.
Last weekend, I had 4 patients admitted to the ICU for diseases that could have easily beeen managed with a regualr doctor if there were a univeral health care plan. Instead, taxpayers, health insurance payers, and the hospital bottom line paid tens of thousands of dollars in each case to fix what should have been prevented.

If only we had a fleet of M5s roving the globe, providing health care where needed, then speeding on to the next spot. Hmm, maybe I should submit a claim for an economic stimulus/healthcare project......
