I don't know what other experiences people have had but what is with the going to these drs keeping you there for hours on end? I admit I don't need specialists, or anything more than yearly exams thankfully but I had experiences taking her to her appts since she is living with me which have pissed me off to no end...podiatrist to cut nails- she was taken to exam room...1 hr passes- come to find out dr wasn't even in the office as I watch him come bursting through the doors ....never was told this at reception desk..
Optamologist who did her cataract surgery about 10years ago- got her to office 11 30 for an 11 45 appt...was told he was running a bit late...wait an hr , she goes in ...gets drops for dilation , she comes out and waits in waiting room, go back in...finally at 2 30 I ask reception desk how much longer is she gonna be in there...I get told at least 45 mins..WHAT?... Do people have to take a whole day off work to see a dr? We were there 10 mins short of 4 hrs to hear nothing has changed...is this the norm today when you see the dr? I'm surprised she didn't pass out there from hunger as she ate lunch 4pm that day..why don't these drs send the elderly home if they are there for non emergencies...ugh. She's 93 by the way
