Hello, Doctor

How the time played out at the VA last night:

Check-in: 30 seconds.
First episode of Simpsons on iPhone: 22 minutes.
TED Talk #1: 17 minutes.
TED Talk #2: 14 minutes.
Triage: 3 minutes.
Time spent totally idle: 15 minutes.
Time spent reading while waiting for doc: 20 minutes.
Time actually spent with doc: less than 5 minutes.

Beats being uninsured.

  1. If it makes you feel any better – I have the same experience every time I go to the VA. I also had the exact *same* experience every time I went to a regular doctor, at either an urgent-care (urgent, HA!) or hospital when I had regular insurance.
