Going to the doctor is always full of waiting.
Waiting for the nice lady at the counter to copy your driver’s liscence and insurance card for the hundredth time even though nothing has changed in the past 2 years.
Waiting for the other nice lady to write you a receipt for the cash copay you have every time you go to the doctor, even though you have overpaid in the past and the doctor owes you $50.
Waiting for your child to come out of the washroom so that you don’t miss your name being called.
Waiting for the nurse, or doctor, to call your child’s name so that they can be seen in the next available room.
Waiting in a dark room, with eyes closed so that the eye drops work properly and then we can finish the exam
Waiting for another diagnosis, or problem, or maybe this time good news that the eyes are working with the glasses to keep eyes straight.
