Asking a personal question for personal opinions/view points. How many patients should a Doctor have and should there be a limit?? I have found on numerous occasions where a doctor,mine and Others have scheduled several and sometimes more appointments at the exact same time. How is it that a doctor has time to see each patient thoroughly, efficiently n effectively if he/she is having to Rush to see all his or her patients? Plus you have to wait if you come in early or on time and if you're 15 mins late,you usually have to be rescheduled. And of course your time with the doctor is with most appointments brief. I don't understand how a doctor can do this as a doctor to begin with,with both himself/herself and with the patient/s. Maybe someone can enlighten me on this and explain on behalf of Our doctors plus your own feelings/view points & opinions???
