In doctor’s office, it’s hurry up and wait. Mitch Albom waits 47 minutes for a blood draw:

Forty-seven minutes. I am led inside. They stick the needle. I press the cotton. I put on my coat. I exit the office. The faces don’t look up, but I know what they are thinking. They are thinking, “How long?” They are hating every minute of it.

    Similiar incident is exactly why I changed doctors. 45 minute wait to leave a urine sample for testing for a UTI. Just to leave a sample! No tech, nurse or doctor required. Ridiculous. Now am considering going back because present doctor does no testing and it is inconvenient.
