Waiting in the Doctor’s office

One of the more unpleasant aspects of growing older is the increasing amount of time one spends waiting in doctor offices. It’s not unusual to spend an hour or longer waiting to see a doctor, even if you show up early for an appointment.

If it sounds like I’m complaining, I am. Indeed, I’m waiting in a doctor’s office right now. And it’s been a long wait. Too long. Why is it that doctors complain if patients are late for an appointment, but don’t mind keeping patients waiting?

At least the office I’m waiting in now has free internet access so I can write this entry. I guess I should be happy for the little things. But if there is one area where America’s healthcare system can use significant improvement, it’s the wait times patients have to endure.

Maybe Michael Moore is right…
