I demand to see the article before believing what you said.
... Dammit, you're not actually supposed to have a source.
Glad to be a surprise. Now and <3 me.
This is about the first highest scoring post of the day in a month that has has more than +100. sad.
Excuse you? I had one 17 days ago.
I said ABOUT
yeah excuse you
I think I had a 100+ posts too within the months of October/November 2012
"I said ABOUT"
Um... It made PoTD?
No, like the highest scoring opinions today. That's what I meant.
It works both ways. For as many patients sitting in the waiting room for their late doctor, there is another patient who is running late and screwing up the whole schedule.
Every doctor I've been to has the policy that over 15min late you have to reschedule. Also, the rare times I have been called back on time, I had to continue waiting at least 15min before seeing the doctor.
My dad's probably way too lenient then. He's never forced one of his patients to reschedule because they were running late. I admit that most doctors don't seem to operate that way.
Where did your other comment go?
One of the reasons doctor's offices over schedule is so that the doctors stay busy.
Why would they want to stay busy?
If you're paying an employee $200,000, you want them to stay busy.
Who pays doctors?
The doctor's office and hospitals they work for...
I thought insurance paid them.
Aren't there part timers? MAN, THIS IS CONFUSING.
Either way, somebody's paying them their salary and that entity or individual wants to get their money's worth. I can't speak for private family doctors or anything because I've never experienced one and don't know what waiting times are like for them.
Gotcha. I figure you wouldn't want to keep a doctor too busy in order to reduce human error. Wouldn't want them overworked and whatnot.
drs seem to think their time is more important than ours
