Could be worse. My "You MUST See Your Doc Within 72 Hours" post ER visit took 30 days to get. I showed up 45 minutes early ('cause it IS a military facility and I know better) and then found out the doc wasn't even there and they had no record of the appointment.

I've had this happen to me numerous time only I've said something.

Keep her for 30 minutes max, and then send us on our way. That's right.

And as her driver, I have to wait that

Oh, you are not kidding. Hello! I made this appointment for a reason, you inconsiderate dunderhead!

Why is it doctors always assume you have no better place to be? Sure, as much as I'd LOOOVE to spend time in the bacterial culture that is the waiting room, I actually have things I need to do.

Their bedside manor is as such:
"Does this hurt? How about now?"
