    After waiting for an hour or more to see my doc I questioned the receptionest about the time I've spent waiting. She tells me that his time is important and that I should wait. I tell her that I'm leaving and call me to make another appointment. Another time the doc see's me on time and I wait in the exam room for 45 minutes. I get dressed and tell the receptionist that I'm leaving and call me when he is free. I just love their Godlike attitudes!

    Dunno, patients used to get mad when I would walk into the waiting area and the Cardiologist would greet Me, and ask Me to step into his office, if looks could kill..........

    A man can make a mistake about something like that, maybe one facility does thing a little differently than the next. Where this jerk truly went wrong was in not IMMEDIATELY apologizing after being shown that he was wrong. He further showed his weakness by refusing to make eye contact afterwards. He knew he was wrong and still couldn't admit it. Had to send his brother to clean things up for him. Classic bully attributes. Pretty pathetic really.

    I had a horrible case of flu, and called the doc's office to make an appointment. They gave me a time, and I shut down my one-man shop and arrived a few minutes early. After waiting for two hours past the appointment time, I finally got to spend 5 minutes with a physician's assistant, not even the doc I made the appointment with, who agreed with my diagnosis- - -"Yep, you've got the flu" and wrote out a prescription.

    I went back to the shop, wrote out a bill for two hours' labor time, and sent it to the doctor, who happened to be one of my regular customers, along with his wife, son, and daughter. Got a call a few days later from him, asking what the charge was for. "That's for the two hours I spent in your waiting room past my appointment time!" "Do you really expect me to pay this bill?" "Well, doc- - - -do you really expect me to fix your Mercedes the next time it breaks down?"

    He paid me, and I never had to wait past an appointment time again!
