I do not know so much about Health care services in the DR... I have a friend living in the DR who has been in a recent car accident,,,He is now having problems with his hand ( I am not sure EXACTLY the extent of the injuries) ,,he has seen a local Dr ,and now this week has an appointment with a Doctor in POP ,and possibly will need surgury ... What is the Health Care system like ??? What services are provided to residents in the DR? Are employers flexible with time off for medical reasons???
