The appointment was 12.00 PM and he walked in at 1:45 PM. I think it very important to name and shame doctors who take the time of their patients for granted. From the diagnosis point of view, he did not take the time to explain the issue that is causing the pain. It looked like he just wanted to get done with us so he could finish off consulting all patients who had come. We tried to clarify the meds twice and still have no clue what needs to be done when.
