    In my clinic the patients are asking if the doctor is 11 minutes late, i ask them if they’ve ever read their letters that state prepare to be here at least 2-3 hours in case of delay. Every patient takes a various amount of time y’all.

      idk, from the patient’s perspective my experience has been that I get three minutes of doctor time regardless of what my complaint is or even whether the doctor knows what I’m there for. “I’m feeling kinda low lately.” “Here’s an rx for an effexor. I’ll not be explaining what it is, what it does, or any side effects to look out for. If you have any issues, such as a days long hypomanic episode that leads to you sobbing and obsessively vacuuming the floors, here’s the number of someone who cares. NEXT!”

        Not my patients, they have complex problems and need a lot of time. Maintaining someone on a real medical keto diet or starting chemotherapy for MS or refilling pain pumps for paraplegics is not a quick task.
