Dear doctor,

I assume you make some good bank, and also assumed you'd have bought a watch with said salary.

I must've been mistaken.

Because obviously you have NO idea what time it is. Let me help you out: it is ONE HOUR after my scheduled appointment and I am STILL waiting for you.

I thought maybe you needed the 15 minute professor courtesy we used to give in college. But obviously you need much more.

I had a 9:30 appointment. In the morning. How can you be so behind so early in the day?

And is my time not as important as yours? I have a job, too (a pretty important one) that I am missing because I am sitting here, waiting for you.

Also? I think you need to send your staff back to school, becuase they obviously don't know the meaning of the phrase "the doctor would be right with you".

Because if they did?

I wouldn't be writing this.

I feel your pain.

I learned that I needed to take the ENTIRE day off to see this one doctor and would bring a book to read.... I should mention that I learned this lesson after 1 1/2 hours of waiting and leaving in a furry without seeing her.

Ugh. I hate that. Although the flip side of it is that sometimes such doctors are willing to listen to their patients other "non-scheduled" ills and that's what puts them behind. My ob/gyn is like that so she's totally worth the extra waiting time.

On the other hand, if you have to wait endlessly for someone who's totally dismissive, I'd find another doctor.
