A doctor's time is valueable, IS YOURS? Some don't think so.

    I feel your disgust, Steve. It is certainly understandable when an emergency comes up and delays the doc from the scheduled appointment time. But there is no excuse for the staff to not keep us informed. Some doctors seem to have the habit of always being late. They need to revise their scheduling process. And not seeing you for 5 minutes late is just reallydiculous. Fortunately, my doc is usually close to the schedule.

  • All the more reason to return insurance to the old "hospitalization plans". This would put the service provider (the doc) closer to his customers.

    Anytime a service provider is being paid by a third party, customer service suffers.

    When the doctors charge me for missing my appointment or for being late, That is when they will get a bill for my time.

    You see, if you send a legal bill for your time they wasted and they don't respond to it within 30 days of whatever time you request, they automatically owe the bill and you can then take them to court and make them pay you. Since there is no debtors prison they don't have to pay no more than you have to pay.

    All the law requires is that you PROMISE to pay! You sign a promissory note when you fill out the contract. That is all it is basically, a promissory note promising to pay. That actually pays your note - You signature. That is all that is required, but then you don't know that!

    By the way, there is a new update on the number people King Trump is indicting. It started with 400 people and has now jumped to 45,000 criminals, pedos and traitors who are named on sealed indictments.

    Not sure if he will arrest before or after the Midterm election. Doesn't really matter, because if they are being arrested and taking to GITMO, they will go either way, before or after the Midterm.

    These people named will spend the rest of their lives on GITMO for LIFE with no Civil Trial. These people will never be seen again once they are taken.

    Kinda like the Bible saying, some will be TAKEN and some will be Left.

    Okay, that's enough for now, I have work to do!

  • Here lately Iíve come to realize doctors are more in the business to make money then the care of patients, thatís including your time!

    4 hours or more for a general monthly visit Iíve endured on several occasions not to mention when they finally get in the room with you basically listen to your need then sub it out to a specialist!

    I get processed so much I had to look in the mirror and ask myself if itís me with the problem for them just to send me along without even listening to my heart, checking down my throat, or thumping my knee with a rubber hammer.

    Shelbyville has had a need for more doctors for years now...I wish more younger, smarter doctors and specialist would settle here like a rheumatologist that accepts Medicare and Medicare instead of having to drive to Columbia or Nashville! Talk about time, thatís an all day thing!

    Years ago a doctor would look into your eyes, ears, nose and throat then tell you what was wrong with you.

    Today they have to send you to a specialist. They don't even check your eyes, ears, nose and throat. I think that is Tennova's family of doctors making money for Tennova. They get a kickback for sending patients to other specialists. The more specialists they send you to or tests they have done, the more Tennova and they earn. They probably have a quota they have to meet.
