The TEMPLEt OF DOOM
I hate making people wait and I know they hate waiting for the doctor and no matter what we do we always run late. We have looked at every possible appointment template and no matter what it always seems to fail. It is especially worse this time of year when everyone has to update their insurance and or Medicare info. The first appointment is at 830, we try to make that a follow up, but of course they come to the office at 830, have to update all the information which takes 20 minutes and then it has to be entered into the computer so they dont even go back until after 900. You then go to see them for what was scheduled as a brief check up of the problem that you were consulted to take care of only to have them want you to check and look at something unrelated. Meanwhile the other patients are arriving and by some type of space-time wormhole, all arrive about the same time regardless of their actual appointment time. Now the waiting room is full, everybody is mad and doesnt want to wait. In comes someone who has an appointment tomorrow and wants to see if they can be worked in. Whne you finally get to see the patients, after you see them for what the appointment was for, they say " oh, by the way, I have this stange pain down my left arm now and then, but its worse when I go up stairs!"
