    Host: Will I be able to get medical treatment for any medical conditions?

    Ed Bales: You will have access to medical treatment in prison. As far as any type of medical condition, that depends. Usually the serious nature is taken first and then if you have a lesser degree or a problem, you will be seen according to the time frame that the prison has. There is a full staff usually in most facilities for both, medical, dental, mental health, there is a pharmacy that will evaluate your medications and determine which medications you should have, which medications they will change.
