The timing and length of every patient’s visit during the day affects every appointment that follows it. For example, if a patient arrives for her appointment 15 minutes late and needs to complete her history prior to being seen, the entire day will run 45 minutes late. If she then has concerns in addition to her annual exam that require extra time, the entire day could easily run 60 minutes late. In the past we have tried to accommodate everyone, however, this is the primary reason for our office running late. If you arrive late, we will need to re-schedule your appointment.
