Where’s The Big Hand, Doctor?

Tuesday, May 18th, 2021

Today I waited 35-minutes past my scheduled appointment to see a doctor. The appointment was at 8:45 AM and there was no one else in the waiting room.

I’m mad at myself. I usually leave after 15- or 20-minutes and tell my insurance company not to pay any invoices for my “visit.” I then make other arrangements.

Doctors justify long wait times by saying they have to overbook because patients often don’t show up for appointments. Sorry – not my problem. I always show up early for appointments and leave after 15-minutes of wait time. My time is valuable.

Why do we believe that our doctors’ time is MORE valuable than our own and give them the right to make us wait?

I have another visit scheduled for Thursday morning. I’ll let you know if the doctor has learned how to tell time by then.

Ahhh … Memories …
