" Be Good and Do Good "
Recently, I and my relatives visited an astrologer. We landed at his home at 1000 hrs and placed our horoscope in the queue as the tenth number. At 1400 hrs, my position was two. Suddenly the astrologer got up from his chair and went for his lunch. He returned only at 1500 hrs.

Generally doctors in hospitals (not small clinics), have to focus on outpatients, inpatient or wards and then the causality department. There would always be the chance of an emergency arising in any of these places. Surgeons, generally operate before or after their outpatient hours. Sometimes the timing is wrong. Doctors often take a coffee break or quickly move up and down to fill out insurance papers,fulfill a request for seeing a patient of a different specialty or to check on a patient who is not doing as well as they should or a patient's family needs an update urgently. There are instances where in it's purely a time management issues where in the patients are made to wait. If this is a regular practice, then we should bring it up with the customer care manager. The patient's time is also as important as the doctor's.

What we can do? We will patiently wait secretly cursing our fate. If there is a possibility, we will beg or plead to take our case. If that is the end of the day, we will return to come back next day. But in the case of doctors, we will be more understanding and sympathetic as we know there are some who also need the service on priority.
