Once Dr. Navi began to exam and meet and do the appropriate tests, it was very very quick.8-10 minutes.
However, I arrived at 11:33 for an 1145 appointment. I was not taken back to prep for the exam until 12:28 PM.
The assistance, took my blood pressure, which was fairly high. They allowed me to sit for a few minutes and took it 2 more times. It did lower, but not within the normal ranges out 10 minutes.
I sat in the room with my clothes on for a proximately, 20 minutes. I asked if I should get undressed, the assistant said ,”not yet.“”
She came back into the room about 20 minutes later. She told me now I could get undressed in for the doctor. It was very very cold in the room that I was waiting for Dr. Navi.
He came in about 15 to 20 minutes later.
His exam and procedures took about 8-10 minutes.
My husband was in the waiting room for this entire time. He was wondering what took so long for a quick exam, and so was I ?
As you a see, TIME spent was: 2 hours and 28 minutes, for an 8 to 10 minute exam. It would have been expeditious and beneficial to both parties, knowing that the doctor was overcommitted; to call me and schedule a different date!
Does this happen often?
I have only seen Dr. Nabi twice, and he has been excessively late both times!
What do you and Dr. Navi suggest for the future? Should I be the very first person to be seen?
Thank you for your service and the opportunity to discuss my grievances and options.
