On average, we see about four patients per hour per provider, but that is highly variable. If you are very ill we might spend an hour with you whereas if it is a simple follow up appointment it might be as little as 5 minutes. Consequently, it is not unusual for us to run late seeing patients depending upon the complexity of each patient’s illness. If we are running late, we’ve asked our staff to notify those waiting in the reception area.
When you have an appointment with us, please be aware that an average visit takes about 15 minutes. This includes our time reviewing your chart before we see you as well as updating and documenting the chart after you’ve left. As such, we try to get as much done for your health in that time as possible.
