How long will you or do you wait for your Doctor appointment
Had to see a new Doctor today about my shoulder. Filled out all their papers they sent me, so they told me I would only need to be there 15 minutes early. I was 25 minutes early. Appointment was at 9:30 am, they begin seeing patients at 8:00am...it was 10:47 before the Doctor saw me. That is 1 hour 17 minutes waiting on him. My question is at what point do you say enough is enough on waiting for your Doctor?
Now I know that emergencies do come up, there was none today. I think it is rude and inconsiderate for them to keep patients waiting. They will not wait on you. I wonder how patient/kind they would be if they had to wait on a plumber or electrician that said they would be there at such and such time and showed up an hour late.
Unfortunately what choice do we have. Guess I just wanted to vent.
IT IS TOTALLY UNFAIR... AND I HOPE ANY DOCTOR THAT MAKES HIS PATIENTS WAIT OVER 30 MINUTES....HAS HIS TOILET BACK UP ON HIM!!! LOL JK... that would not be right
