The other side...

Greetings! I'm a 33 year old woman married to an ob/gyn physician somewhere in the Southeastern U.S. I've decided to create this blog to give some tips and insight from the other side of the medical visit. Most of us know what it's like to be the patient, and maybe you've wondered what goes through a doctor's mind. I'm hoping that people have BETTER visits with their physicians with some of the insights provided. I used to help run my husband's previous medical practice and so I also have experience with the business side of medicine (yes, unfortunately a medical practice has to adhere to business practices, which is a side effect of our current health care crisis--more on this later). In addition, my closest friends are physicians and their specialties run the gamut from internal medicine to psychiatry to surgery. I get to hear the war stories behind the scenes. I hope that by sharing these stories that patients will have a better understanding on what goes on in a doctor's office.

No one likes waiting in doctor offices, and we all know too well that longer waits are just around the corner...baby boomers retiring and the general population getting older will mean more health-care costs. I am a Software Solution Architect and after hearing the many issues doctor offices have with patients waiting I customized a software that I designed for BMW to work helping reduce "Wait Times" in the health industry, the software is called www.lobbymanager.com
