Two Different Doctors' Offices

Two patients limp into two different medical clinics with the same complaint. 
Both have trouble walking and appear to require a hip replacement.


The first patient is examined within the hour, is x-rayed the same day and has a time booked for surgery the following week.

The second sees his family doctor after waiting 3 weeks for an appointment, then waits 8 weeks to see a specialist, then gets an x-ray, which isn't reviewed for another week and finally has his surgery scheduled for 6 months from then.

Question:
Why the different treatment for the two patients?
