Stick It To Doctors Who Keep You Stuck In Waiting Room

Oh, those doctors, with their smug, self-important tendency to keep you stuck in waiting rooms while they play Tetris and check their Facebook. The New York Times has a remedy for what ails you, providing advice on how to get back at doctors who keep you waiting:

*If your doc makes a habit of tardiness, dump him.

*Hunt for a physicians group like this that guarantees appointment times.

*Ask for a discount if you’re kept waiting.

*Complain directly to your doctor and/or whine about the wait times online.

What have you done to minimize medical wait times? I opt to just accept them as a fact of life and rely on my DSi to keep me distracted.
