A visit to one of the last private doctors in Cuba
By CGTN America
Most healthcare services in Cuba are free and run by the state. 
Cuban President Raul Castro has permitted the privatization of some Cuban businesses such as beauty salons and restaurants. But other professions have not been given that allowance. They include doctors, attorneys, architects and engineers.
However, if you were a doctor before 1963, you’re allowed to still have a private practice. 
Cuba is well-known for its universal free public health service, where almost all of the country’s doctors work for the state. But there are a few, elderly doctors who have private practices or can see private patients after hours. 
CGTN Correspondent Michael Voss made an appointment with one of the last remaining private medical workers on the island.
