Ahh, well-trained physical therapists are another matter. They are hard to find and incredibly expensive because they are in such demand. There are many wealthy families in Hong Kong and China. They hire them up and hospitals have a hard time keeping them.

Yes, it is incredible. The advantage that a company in Hong Kong has over a company in the U.S. and Germany are absolutely stunning. Those costs are not passed on to the consumers. That is one HUGE advantage of universal health care, if it ever comes about.
