I had a doctor’s appointment a few days ago at three in the afternoon. I always get nervous and anxious about these things and let me tell you that the doctors don’t make these tense feelings any better.
Most doctors I’ve had over the years I have liked, but they all have one thing in common: That damn waiting room
On this last visit, I got there a little before three. I got in for my three o’clock appointment at four thirty—an hour and a half late. Waiting all that time made me even tenser.
Of course after I’m finally called back, there’s more waiting in that little room. It’s always the old “Hurry up and wait” bit.
On the way back home, I decided that from this point on, I’m going to make my doctor appointments for first thing in the morning, going to be the first patient scheduled. I mean if a bank is supposed to be open at nine, wouldn’t a doctor’s office have the same approach?
I’m going to find out. I’ll keep you posted.
