How you found us: I google myself regularly
Appointments: why doesnt anyone keep them?
I totally lost my shit today at the doctor's office. I took time off work to see this guy about my hand, I showed up 15 minutes early, and signed in. There was no receptionist to greet me, and 1 patient ahead of me. The guy finally emerges, 20 minutes past MY appointment time, chatting with his patient about random social stuff, clearly not in any hurry to get back on schedule. Then calls the lady ahead of me and takes her back and he almost made it into the exam room with her when he decided to stop and ask me if I was next, to which I said "yes; my appointment time was 25 minutes ago." He says "I'm not sure how long this will be," to which I thought "your website says you've been doing this 20 years; you can't even guess how long this will take?!"
Last week my hairdresser made me wait 30 minutes and then took her sweet ass time giving me an hour and a half haircut (WAY too long), and now this. I've had it with this crap. Our pediatrician's office sees hundreds of kids a day and they are never ever ever late. It is so efficient!
So, I looked this doctor straight in the eye and said, "I'm going to have to go; I need to get to work." He looked at the appointment book and said, "well is there a time that's good for you?"
I said, "11:30 was good for me, and what we had agreed on. Unfortunately, I am going to have to find another chiropractor who respects my time." And I walked out. If he can't even apologize for being late, he doesn't get my business. Period.
Does anyone else do this? Or do you put up with the lateness? I can't believe it took me 33 years of life to finally put my foot down on this crap.
