How many auto mechanics do you know who do pro bono work? Are regulated to do it by law? Yet people need cars to get to work and manage to pay for it.

I'm not impressed.

I'll also note that the rest of the "developed world" is going broke at an even faster rate than the United States.
First, there's a little bit of difference between deciding to have your oil changed and the absolute need to be treated for a heart attack, for example.

Second, when you say, "It astounds me to see the arrogance"...I didn't notice an ounce of arrogance in the original poster's message.

I never asked for free services, only a place that could possibly not force me to pay up front and would accept a payment plan. This was posted a long time ago; I now live in Denver, have (payed) health insurance for both my kids and myself, and give back to the community as it has helped us in the past. I'm very thankful I did find the place I went to back then, as without them, my child would have endured horrible pain for a very long time. I'm sorry you feel the way you do, but not everyone is looking a free ride.

Thank you for posting where you found a location. So many on here come on here with questions but then never respond on where they ended up going. Kudos! Hope all is better!

Which hospitals in COS have such emergency rooms?

If you have a student that attends a school in D49, there is a Falcon clinic to which they can go.
