Does your doctor ever run on time?

Mine usually don't. In fact, the office I'm at right now is the one that kept me waiting four hours to get in for my first appointment. I brought my 2-in-1 with me this morning. I thought I'd have a few minutes to work on my Zazzle store, but they got me in about 5 minutes after I got the paperwork done. My appointment with my provider went just as quickly. Now I'm back in the lobby waiting for my prescription to be ready, and I haven't been here half an hour yet. I love when they move so fast, but why do these things always happen on days when I plan for the typical (long) wait?

I had one doctor who ran on time. The first time I saw her , I had a list of questions to ask after the examination for the main reason I booked an appointment. She said book another appointment and clearly state what you want. I am not keeping my next patient waiting. And she left. I always was clear after that and she answered everything I wanted. At first I was annoyed but came to really appreciate her system

Mine isn't usually on time either. I don't have to wait terribly long, but I usually have to wait 15-30 minutes. If my appointment is at 2, I'm usually seen at 2:15-2:30. I don't usually have to wait much longer than that.

That's the worst wait I've ever had there... it was toward the end of the day and they had a huge issue with their entire computer system going down. I guess nobody there knows how to manage without the system. The other times I've had long waits have been on days when they were doing outpatient procedures in the office and the doctor had issues with at least one patient who was under sedation.
