  1. Re: Patients are losing patience. No kidding! It’s everywhere. I recently waited 2 hours to see my Dr. The explanations are always the same…visits turned out more complex than anticipated, walk-in appts, late patients. These are all management issues. They book back-to-back 15 minute visits with no room for slip. It’s not unlike the airlines deliberately over-booking flights.
    80% of this is completely avoidable. The first step is to stop pretending that you can complete a visit in 15 minutes and have time for charting, bathroom break, etc. Book 5-10 minutes slack between every visit. It may seem costly, but practices have no choice. it’s a basic management issue.
