Dayton Orthopedics: Shortest Appointment Wait Time In The Country!
How Many Days Do You Wait To See Your Doctor?
Recently I woke up with a miserable sinus infection and knew I needed to get to my doctor immediately. I called right when his office opened, let them know the problem, and the polite scheduler let me know the first available appointment was in about a week! Not good when you’re sick, and can be even worse when you’re in pain.
Recently there was a survey done on orthopedic physician wait times across the country (Merrit Hawkins & Assoc 2009 Survey of Physician Appointment Wait Times). I was frankly amazed at how long the wait times were for the different regions. I’ll give you a few examples: Dallas 45 Days, Boston 40 Days, Minneapolis 20 Days. The national average is 17 days.
I don’t know about you, but that seems outrageous to me! If you’re in pain due to an orthopedic problem, 10 days could seem like a lifetime, let alone 40.
Did You Know The Average Wait Time At Dayton Orthopaedic Surgery & Sports Medicine is ONLY 5 Days!
Not only that, if you have a bad injury or fracture, Dr. Paley’s wonderful staff can almost always get you in the same day. That is fantastic patient service, so keep Dayton Orthopedics in mind next time you need an orthopedic surgeon. Their staff is the best you’ll find.
Oh, and back to my doctor…I went somewhere else.
