I expect to be seen close to my scheduled time, not two hours late (and counting). It isn't my fault you don't have your shit together. Dh and I have things to do.

I feel you. I wish you could charge them a late fee like they do you.

I hate it, but I try to be as understanding as possible. Sometimes big issues come up. I hate when doctors rush through appointments and I feel like I can't ask questions.

I agree. Went to my ent appt. Showed up on time. Waited over an hour. Got up to leave. They said if I left I would owe a cancellation fee. What for? I am here. I waited. I have to go!


I haven't been back to that dr since.

Oh, and then my veins decided they didn't want to cooperate. Six sticks and three different nurses later, the IV is finally in.

Our clinic has a reader/advertising board that tells you if your doctor is on time or behind schedule. If it's 30+ minutes past my appointment time, and I'm still waiting, I find someone to reschedule me for a time when the doc ISN'T busy.

Thank the insurance companies, seriously. When I did press scheduling we had to schedule every 15 minutes-pediatric ent! I can't tell you when if ever 1 appt ever lasted 15 min! It's BS.
