When you go to the doctor, how long does he or she typically spend with you in the room?
I ask this because someone in my family is an accountant, and he said one of his doctor clients told him that she has four rooms in her practice, and each turns over every 15 minutes. Four patients every 15 minutes = less than 4 minutes per patient.
My relative was surprised and we were discussing how, between the doctor evaluating test results and looking at the patients’ charts, she has about 2 to 3 minutes per patient to do discussion and exam.
