I hate being put on hold!

Do doctors offices really get so many calls that they must put you on hold for 20 mins? or are they just goofing off and forgot about you? i mean many people are calling at the exact moment you are?

  • Not only are the phones ringing, but they have clients waiting for referrals, to pay bills, to be checked out, etc. There's always a lot going on. If you were in the office, standing there, how would you like it if they were talking on the phone to someone? Not trying to bash, just trying to show the other side.

  • I just surf the net and put the phone on speaker so I can pick up when I get a live person ..
