  8 Things Your Doctor Won’t Tell You


Posted by: Alyson @ 1:24 pm

Just like all moms, you probably want to know all the inside secrets at your doctor’s office. Lucky you, because we spoke to many doctors and nurses and found out eight things your doctor wants to tell you but just can’t.

  1. We know it’s hard for you to be stuck in a noisy waiting room with a screaming baby for an hour but you have no choice. The nicer you are to everybody working here at the office, the more you’ll get back from us. Try to compliment the staff, smile, and be nice, because then you have more of a chance of them squeezing you in when you need, or getting them to go the extra mile for you. Try to make their day easier not more difficult.
  2. It’s not a problem to book an extra long visit, just say so when making the appointment. Doctors get really frustrated when behind schedule and this holds them up.
  3. Doctor’s offices are never calm, but Monday is always the worst day. Mondays are not for well visits, they are for kids who got sick over the weekend. Wait time is usually shorter Tuesday thru Friday  in the morning when the staff is fresh and eager to work.
  4. It is very normal for moms to prefer one doctor over another. A recent study done by American Baby showed that only 6 percent of moms like all doctors in a practice equally. Chances are if you want to switch your favorite doc, the original doctor won’t even notice and if he does, he won’t think twice. Doctors want you to use who you’re most comfortable using.
  5. Even though doctors use cleaners on their toys daily there is only so much it can do. There’s no way to clean every page of a book or wipe down every wheel of a truck. If you’re worried your child will catch something in the waiting room, bring your own bag of toys to keep your child entertained.
  6. The thing your doctor hates most is when your cell phone rings, or even worse, when you answer it in middle of a visit. Doctors feel that it wastes time and distracts you. Think about it, would you like the doctor to answer his cell phone in the middle of a visit?
  7. You hear “Free samples” and you think “Great!” But hold on a second before you accept those samples, because they can cost you more in the end. Samples can have unpleasant consequences and some even have warnings indicating life threatening risks.
  8. We try our best to call you with your child’s test results but  sometimes when things get busy we just don’t get to it. It’s okay to call and follow up.

    I’ve found the best tip is to book the first appt. in the morning whenever possible. It absolutely eliminates the wait time. Just make absolutely sure that you’re there on time or you won’t ever get that slot again.
