Why do some patients arrive after me but get called before me?
Two things may affect when you are called for your appointment. Some patients are scheduled to see specific staff members for quick consultations only. These patients are not seeing the same doctors that you are seeing. Other times, patients arrive with severe conditions that must be addressed immediately. Please be considerate of life-threatening medical needs, as it could one day be you requiring immediate attention.
