The more I learn about the EU healthcare system, the better it sounds. Do you ever experience denial or limitation of care based upon system limitations, ie, perception of medical necessity, choice of physician, etc?

NOPE, this I have never experienced, well I only saw the doctor once as I am hardly sick. :)
