    See? Waiting isn’t always such a bad thing… 😬

    Actually, yeah it is. 😜

    Wait until you see my post from today…mind blown.

  3. But will he get charged the full price anyway? Healthcare nerds want to know! I once got charged $150 for an injection they couldn’t make because they couldn’t find a vein into which they could inject it. I said “no injection, no payment.” They felt having tried in at least four collapsing veins, I should pay them for their “effort.”

    I felt with all those bruises, they should pay ME. I think I won that round.

    • My favorite is when I look at the bill and it says “Office Visit – LONG” which allows them to charge more money. The only long thing about the office visit was the hour and a half I had to wait to see the doctor for five minutes. Yesterday (when I came up with this idea), they managed to pull my chart out of the queue to be called back, which I had to inform them of after I had sat in the waiting room for two hours. I wonder if they’ll charge me rent for that time on top of my LONG office visit…

    Don’t you just love that? I always feel like an impostor if my symptoms lessen before I have seen the doc.

  5. hahaha I agree to sit in a waiting room forever is a super treatment… I often was cured when I heard the noises from the dogtors room and when I saw the people who came out there lOL

    • I get creeped out when I go to my urologist’s office and see the big container full of……… um…….. “tubes”, and then look at the table and imagine all of the horrible things that have happened to patients there.

    His boxer shorts are sooo cool.

  7. I’ve always wondered just how many people pass away in an emergency room WAITING. Isn’t an emergency an emergency? I also HATE waiting FOREVER to see my doctor for a five minute HELLO just to be able to renew prescriptions. WASTE-O-TIME! Can you tell I’m cranky this morning???? LOL

    Pam
    p.s. I like those pink undies too…..

    • The whole time I’m waiting in the waiting room, I’m staring at their poster that very clearly proclaims “PATIENTS WHO ARRIVE MORE THAN 15 MINUTES LATE WILL HAVE TO RE-SCHEDULE AND BE CHARGED A $25 FEE.” Shouldn’t this apply to the DOCTORS as well!!?!? My doctor routinely shows up for work an hour after his first appointment for the day!

      • We have the same sign – irritates the **** out of me when I sit and stare at that thing for a half hour before I get called back for my THIRTY SECOND appointment!!

  8. Ally Bean says:

    And the waiting at the doc’s office keeps getting longer and longer, as I get older and older. Such is life, huh?

  9. Hahaha. At my doc’s office, I always said if you weren’t sick when you arrived, you’d probably get sick while waiting to be seen!

  10. It’s not much better here in the UK, although at least we don’t (yet) have to pay for our medical appointments unless we’ve chosen to go private.

    • It really depends on the doctor here. My old doctor could get me in and out of the office in less than half an hour…. but his efforts to get my blood pressure under control were all failures. My urologist’s office is pretty speedy too. But this guy I see…. and all of his patients share the same opinion…. the doctor himself is loved to death by the people who see him, but his disorganized, extremely slow paced office is absolute torture.
