Switching Doctors After 20 Years

Judie Rappaport
June 3, 2014

Dear Judie, 


After 20 years with the same physician, Mom (70) decided the change doctors. She says the practice is too big and she always has to wait 40-60 minutes. She wants to go where she'll be treated better. I told her to stay with her own doctor. She said to ask you.

Dear Mom (and Brian), 


You're right to expect a shorter wait period from your doctor. It's always been a mystery to me why patients accept and pay for services from medical professionals who show their disrespect by regularly overbooking and making ill patients wait 40-60 minutes past their appointment times. Express your dissatisfaction to your doctor and if nothing changes, move on.
