      Doctors offices over schedule cuz there’s a high cancelation rate. So if you have to wait forever it’s cuz people just actually showed up

      I showed up like 20 minutes early for an appointment once (because they always say arrive 15 minutes early to check in). Lobby was empty. Waited forever. Finally asked wtf was going on. The receptionists actually forgot about me...for over an hour. That was cool.

      I have to pay $75 if I cancel an appointment. My dr cancels all the time and the idiot women at the front desk don’t even bother telling me that he’s cancelled until after lm waiting for 45 minutes

      As someone who works at a doctor's office, there are many reasons this happens. Main reason is because people show up right at their appointment and not 15 minutes before (about how long it takes us to get a room available, get them roomed, and process insurance and paper work). So it sets us back

      Imagine if instead of over scheduling doctor’s offices they sold tickets every day and there were scalpers outside the office selling tickets at a higher price to people who couldn’t get them earlier because the scalpers bought them all.

    • NOT_A_BENDER
      The reason doctors or any profession gets behind is because people are late. Even if you show up 2 minutes late then every appointment after you will be 2 minutes late at least. Then there is the fact that they’ll schedule say 20 minutes with you, but it takes 25 before you leave.

      That’s because when someone is late to their appointment, the doctor has to be late for the rest of the day

      I work at an office. People come in and we often get to them right on time but the times they are waiting is caused by other patients NOT because of something we as workers did. You get patients who take forever to fill out their paperwork, some just talk your ear off.

      Honestly people say it's because they put time aside for u, well if that's the fucking case then being "LATE" shouldn't be an issue, just give me the time you set aside? (Never late but my boyfriend once was by a minute and they refused to see him with no line ups)

      doctors often run behind becuz of late pts & becuz when appts are made, they say they’re coming in for a certain issue so the appt is scheduled for the appropriate time to address that issue, & then the day of the appt the pt wants to discuss a million diff issues & the doc can’t just give das boot

      If y’all worked with a doctor you’d know patients aren’t all the same. Some have many complex problems and some just like to talk a lot (too much) about pointless shit they feel is relevant, while the doc just has to do his best to push the visit forward without being rude

      The psychiatrist I used to go to was a 45 minute drive away. I remember one time I was 5 minutes late because of traffic. I got all the way out there and they cancelled my appointment and rescheduled it for a month later. I usually waited around 5 minutes past my scheduled appointment time.

      Often times appts are late because a bunch of patients show up 10 min late, pushing everything back. If most people arrived 5-10 minutes early everything would go quicker. Except for the times when someone shows up for a 10 min appt with 10 different serious issues they’ve been sitting on for months
