I love my chiropractor but I think the office visit time that she alots is too short. I know she is busy and has a lot of patients, but I would love to have more than 10 minutes of her time because the work she does is so helpful to me and others from what I have heard.
She asks all the right questions and makes the adjustments, but when I am hurting, it would be nice to have a few more minutes of her time to get some additional information about the root cause of the problem.Hello Deb,
Thank you for your contribution. Yes, it's a problem all good chiropractors have. They get busier, have less time with each patient, get more rattled, and sometimes have a burnout.
Ask the secretary if there are times when she is less busy. It may mean going for a consultation at a time less convenient for you.
A good doctor-patient relationship means that we can talk honestly, and in a mature fashion, to each other. Try telling her. Nicely!
And if she's getting that rattled, rushed-off-her-feet look, ask her when she last had a three-week holiday. Burn out is a reality for chiropractors. I've got the T-shirt to prove it!
PS: Nice to have an American submit who learnt grammar in school and takes the time to write in decent English. That's why you're a manager, I guess! You know these things ARE important. And indeed they are.
