Do you hate waiting to be seen at the doctor's office? A new website promises to help you monitor wait times so you know exactly when to show up.
Several years ago, Clark took a call from a listener who was livid at a doctor who had him waiting 90 minutes. The man was so angry, in fact, that he sued the doctor in small claims court for lost time at work!
Clark was supportive of the man's position at the time. That, in turn, irritated a lot of doctors who felt the consumer champ was not being respectful of emergencies that often interrupt a doctor's day.
Enter MedWaitTime.com. This new website allows participating doctors, dentists, chiropractors, walk-in clinics and emergency rooms to upload their wait times. That allows you, the customer, to check and know if you should delay leaving for a scheduled appointment.
Basically, MedWaitTime.com values your time as much as that of a doctor!
The website is not yet available everywhere across the country. The Midwest is the most heavily served market at this time as MedWaitTime.com ramps up capability. But you can log on and let them know if you'd like their service to come to your area.
