When I was working for HK Gov't back in last century, we always mocked that the Govt doctors we visited are VETS because usually their checkups were perfuntory.  Whenever we had serious problems, we would rather paid to visit private doctors .

In Singapore, if we go to the Raffles Clinics (a chain private clinic with many branches around town) we only need to flash our medicard then we would be able to get free medical consultations and medicines. 

Although the nearest Raffles Clinic is right opposite to my office, most of my colleagues complained about the standard of the medical practitioners there.  As it's the most convenient one, most of us still will choose to go there, especially during working hours.

Once, my married colleague went there for consultation and was told she was pregnant when she was using a long term contraceptive device.  She was shocked and asked the doctor to check carefully as she should be free from pregnancy for 3 years.  The doctor said, "nothing is 100%, even your family doctor can't guarantee."

She then went straight to her family doctor's clinic with doubt and was finally reassured that she was only having some infection instead of being pregnant!
