It's not the appointment so much as the long waiting to that day.

I have a few appointments along with my wife at the doctor for basic followups. Mine are for blood pressure and mood evaluation and labs. If only I could get it all done on the same day instead of having to divide it into 2 separate days. When I have appointments the stress comes from the waiting. I used to only go to see a doctor when I had an illness. Now that I am past 50, I have to go 2 or 4 times a year and between the commute, parking, the gas, the setting and waiting to hear my name called for vitals It's just like so much mental agony.

I agree, the waiting is the hardest part in regards to doctor's appointments.

well, it is really stressing when you go visit a doctor. this I think is the only appointment that when you got one, you will have to wait minutes, hours and hours to proceed to that appointment.

Hope everything goes well. I haven't been to the Doctor since November when I busted my head. As a general rule I avoid them..

I waited over an hour one time and when the doctor said my blood pressure was up I told him I am not surprised and yours would be too. I need to be elsewhere now! GRRR

It does get quite long and drawn out. I did lots of appointments with my sister for about a year. Some weeks we had as many as four appointments.
