Yeah, get used to that. Unless it's an emergency, expect anything from 3-6 months to make appointments for a lot of the doctors for regular check up type of stuff.

Once you find a doctor, it's worth getting any and all annual check up appointments booked for the next year in advance, especially if you have kids for their check ups and then adjust the appointments a few months before if you need to change them.

Score. One of the docs downstairs is booking for July. The other for next week. No guesses as to which I went for

Pretty much settled now. Apart from one thing - need to find a doctor. That's proving fun and games, so I'm off to delve through some threads here.

Cheers guys
And how are you enjoying Boston so far?

Welcome! You're in Beacon Hill? Lucky person...thats a lovely spot that should ease the transition from the UK somewhat. I think parts of Boston are very British is character and atmosphere.
I'm about 1 and 45 mins north in Maine.
