Appointment Time

Every time I have to go to the doctor and have to wait past my appointment time (which is just about every time) in order to be seen my blood boils with anxiety. The double standard for honoring scheduled times in the medical field baffles me every.single.time I have to deal with it. And if you complain, they make you feel like a jerk because "the doctor wants to make sure he devotes his attention and takes his thorough time with every single patient" and "your turn will be soon and you will want to appreciate the doctor spending time listening to your ailments". Yes, I've complained more than once and have received these bogus answers more than once. Which make me even more madder. I know, that's not proper English, but this double standard with schedules in the medical field is not proper anything so everything goes as far as I'm concerned.

What if we went to Church and Mass started 45 minutes late because "the priest was listening to the parishioner's concerns and was delayed" or what if the airplane was 2 hours delayed because "the techs ran late inspecting the airplane that left prior" or what if the you get to a restaurant for a 7:15pm reservation and are not sat until 9:00pm because "we are making sure the servers take their time cleaning every table thoroughly before seating a new guests"

SERIOUSLY? You know what you have to do. You know approximately how long each task takes. Why has it become acceptable to book so many patients that the doctors cannot honor scheduled appointment times? Not to mention the fact that if you show up 15 minutes late for your appointment, they will charge you and cancel you...

Rant over. Until I have to go to the doctor again next time. Which at this rate, it just might be next week........................
