What I am saying is what most people think is "I need an appointment NOW", really isn't. I am a physician...we leave slots open everyday for these "emergencies". I put them in quotes, because most of the time I start rattling off the push fluids, rest, OTC meds spiel. It's a waste of time and money to run to the doc for every little thing. There are exceptions, but most add-in appointments are not needed. tincture of time.


Agreed, seeing a doctor for most cold or flu is useless. My MIL use to demand prescriptions for colds.
