Holiday Season = Rush Hour for Doctors

Holiday Season = Rush Hour for Doctors

It’s the end of the year and for many people that means that the dreaded annual deductible has finally been met.

Now comes the rush to get all the things done that needed to be done but weren’t because their costs came out of our pockets. Physicians understand this behavior. I’m doing it myself.

But we only can see so many patients per day and have only so many days left of office hours this year (we like to be off for the holidays too!) So please plan ahead. Each year I feel bad when patients don’t get what they want or need because of poor planning on their part — calls the last few days (or hours of the last day) of the year begging to get an appointment that should have been scheduled weeks ago with the excuse that they were so busy celebrating the holidays they had no time.

Take a few seconds and pick up the phone now. Get the appointment that you want. We would love to take care of you!

And happy holidays to everybody, no matter which you celebrate….(you can celebrate them all if you like!) : )
