I just hate waiting at doctors office. If I were to come late they would have canceled my appointment, but it is ok for the doctor to be late.

You are spot on with that one, Charlie! Most of my doctor's are pretty good, but one time at the cardiologist office, they weighed me and checked my blood pressure and put me in a room to wait for the doctor. I waited so long that I finally opened the door and asked if they forgot me. It turns out that something happened to a patient in another room. DH was waiting out in the waiting room for me and was worried about me because everyone was running back to the rooms. But you're right. If it's you that's late because of an emergency that's just too bad.

If I'm the patient having a cardiac emergency, making the doctor late, I sure do hope s/he won't rush taking care of me in order to keep to the schedule. I'll talk to the staff after an hour and if it's inconvenient for me to continue to wait, I'll reschedule the appointment.

I was not complaining that the cardiologist was taking care of the patient with the emergency. I was just stating WHY the doctor was delayed seeing me.

It sounded like you were agreeing with Charlie who was complaining about having to wait for the doctor. My point is that if the doctor is taking care of an emergency, I'm not going to complain or be upset about it. I'll just reschedule the appointment.

I WAS agreeing with Charlie. About doctors who overschedule and therefore leave people sitting in the waiting room, because as Charlie said, if you are late for your appointment, they make you reschedule. You could have had trouble with traffic, or parking.

Then I mentioned a time when I was wondering why I was waiting so long and found that it was because of an emergency with another patient, not the doctor's fault.

I was pointing out that there are 2 sides to the coin.

It seems to me that you tear apart every post I make.

I get so tired of fussing with self-seal plastic bags. It's a great idea when it works; makes me want to tear out my hair when it doesn't. Sometimes it seals so tightly I have trouble getting it unsealed. Or it looks resealed and isn't.

I was at the regular office. Physical. What emergency in a dedicated clinic? Not hospital, not Urgent care. I end up waiting for an hour and a half.

I agree with this, I am ANTI zip lock, they are expensive and I would rather use tupperware, that new affordable thinner ziplock brand reusable container system is nice...
