Yes, my health system uses MyChart as well. It's very useful and timely for appointments (and reminders), test results etc. I haven't had an occasion to use it for giving Out of System providers access, transferring records etc.

Oh you are saying yelp likes me so keeps it on top. Many have reported since mine but mine stays on top. The surgeon has 50 some reviews right now and I'd bet he's done 500 of replacements or more, he's known as the assembly line surgeon, so not many report on yelp anyway. But those who do, see mine first....

And yes, his work really messed me up.

I believe she is saying that it is your account, so it puts your review on top when you view it. If I had a review with the same doctor, mine would appear on top (to me) when I was logged in.

For everyone else it shows their review on top; or, if they have none, whatever the algorithm is (by date, by most helpful, etc.).

I wasn't aware of this (didn't pay attention) so thanks to LLCNYC for teaching me something new.

As far as my GP, the wait time is usually less than 10 minutes and the time with him is normally around 5 minutes. However, if I have questions and/or need to discuss my health he is more than willing to take whatever time is required (within reason of course).

On the other side of the coin - when I visit one of my eye specialists the average wait time is 1 to 1-1/2 hours, and the time he spends in the exam room is five minutes or less. His staff is instructed to double and triple book appointments and that is one reason for the ridiculous wait time. Changing doctors wouldn't solve the issue of growing old in the waiting room since all of these particular eye doctors are that way, and I suppose they think, "The other doctors keep the same schedules, might as well jump on board".

It may or may not help anybody who has a doc with traditionally long waits but my husband did once have an ortho who scheduled surgeries before office hours and was consistently behind .
When we got there, we'd ask how far behind and if like an hour or more, then leave and go do something else and return closer to the more likely time

I gave the ortho surgeon who botched my hip a review...it's right on top of all of them.
Oh I absolutely leave reviews on doctors. I had a horrible visit with a gastro once and I posted the review recounting the facts of the appointment. And a few other people then posted they had the same experience. Even though I am frustrated with my GP I give her a good review because I recognize that she does a good job overall.

Agree that is frustrating. Doing clinic and cases on the same day is not ideal. Usually, surgeons have 2-3 days of clinic and the other days are for cases. That's what works out best for everyone, including the surgeon. However, a lot depends on if and when they can get block time in the OR, turnover time in the OR, and what days are available for them to be in clinic since exam rooms and staff are often shared among partners. If clinic and cases can only be done on the same days, then yes, you are going to run into problems.

I think many patients are far to rushed by doctors, not all however. Maybe the doctors who rush you take on more patients then they can handle a day or just not allow enough time for each one. Even worse some may just not care that much. We went to a new doctor after moving and he was also in the room for maybe a minute or less. Probably waited a good 30 minutes in the room prior to that and then longer before leaving. My husband asked only one question which he never truely answered or addressed and was out the door. You can barely explain anything or ask questions. If you are concerned about something you end up feeling frustrated and lost as to what to do.

Now not all are like this. Back in my home state my family doctor was excellent. He was friendly, patient and loved to joke around. Most important he listened, asked questions and gave you time. The doctor I mentioned before who rushed us out we never returned to. Went to another doctor and he was great. He took so much time explaining answers to my questions and even did an extra exam after I mentioned an issue I'd have. He was what I was looking for and my husband went to him shortly after with also a good experience.

My advice is to find a new doctor if the one you use is rushing you like that, not all do.

Dear God, do you know how Yelp or other things work?????

It's on top because it's your review!!!! You will always see it on top until the end of time!

No. One. Else. Does. Only. You.

So no. No one "sees your first"!
