SGH Orthopaedic Appointment in Late May

So today I went to see the doctor in polyclinic, he gave me a referral letter to SGH, then I went to the referral booking counter and the earliest date they got for me was 23 May, this lead me thinking, I have a serious back problem now and I have to wait for more than 2 months, by then I think my back would have recovered, then again it's still good to go for a check. But are we lacking healthcare professionals? Too many patients too little doctors? Something is not right, in Thailand if you have a back problem like mine, you'll probably get to see the specialist on the same day, do the scan and whatever necessary but here, wait 2 months, what a joke.
