Does Your Doctor Take The Time to Discuss Health Issues with You?

One of the biggest complaints people make about their doctors is that they have to sit in a waiting room for 1-2 hours and then once they finally see their doctor, they feel like he/she doesn’t spend much time with them.

Is this the doctor’s fault for overbooking? Is this a mismanagement of time? Is this due to an overzealous office manager who books as many patients as possible? All of these are possibilities. However, you, the person who goes to his/her doctor to discuss their health issues and concerns, is not being given sufficient time to discuss these concerns and issues.
