Schedule your appointments at the right time: If you want your doctor's undivided attention it's best to see him/her when they're most focused. Schedule the first appointment of the morning, the first after lunch, or the last of the day. That way you get face time with your medical provider when they're alert and you don't have to worry about being rushed out the door for the next appointment. Also, try your best to avoid appointments around holidays and weekends. Youâ€™ll be more likely to have your doctorâ€™s full attention during these times.
