I really appreciate it when the Dr. takes time to talk to us when there are complicated issues. But what that means if they do this for everyone they get backed up. Our previous urologist was a stickler about being on time and the last time we saw him he said "I don't have time to talk." just after saying he was concerned about what he saw during the cystoscopy.
The urologist we see now is in a university/medical school setting and he generally runs late. It turns out later in the day is better. If we are getting worked in to an already crowded schedule it also takes longer. Julie

I find most uro's in an office setting are always waaaaay behind......I've had better luck with a larger cancer center or university setting. I just leave after an hour explaining i have appointments also.......they dont care...........Pat

Thanks, this doctor s first appointment is at 1pm. When I was checking out a man was there it must of been about6pm and his appt was at 4 he said its always that way my husband isnt happy with the way it is , never single mention of time is uttered, everyone seems to just wait. I wont let him say anything to the doctor,about it , he did talk to the gal making appointments and she said 1pm should be a good time but no promises,I understand emergencys.

I always call ahead and ask if the Dr. is running on schedule. Also, it is best to make your appointment for first thing in the morning, or the last one of the day. With Mid Day appts. there is always the chance that they have a back-up from the morning. I would give that a try before you switch, especially if the Dr. is worth it.
