When you make a trip to your doctor, you can expect to wait a few hours for your appointment.
But when you book online, it’s up to you to decide whether you want to make a video call or ask for your own appointment.
Here’s how to figure out what to do in each situation.
We’re getting to the heart of this for a couple reasons.
First, we’re getting a little bit more personal.
I’m just trying to figure something out about my doctor, but the answer to that will probably be a little different for each person.
For example, my doctor is not on Twitter or Facebook or LinkedIn, so there are only a few ways I can ask for my own appointment on the web.
If my doctor’s Twitter account is a little more than a year old, that might be the best choice for me.
Second, you may be asking your doctor for an appointment and then deciding that the best thing to do is make a phone call instead.
That’s a little less intuitive, but I’m not sure what I’d do differently.
I’ll leave that to your own personal doctor.
