I understand that doctors offices probably lose a lot of money on missed appointments, but I think appointment reminders are seriously out of control right now.
Every time I or my kids have an appointment for the doctor, I receive:
--2 email reminders (Which unfortunately only tells me that I have a "message" and I then have to log on to the system to find out that I'm just being reminded about an appointment and not being told that I have some horribly abnormal lab)
--One phone call reminder
--One text message reminder
--if it's the dentist, we also get a postcard
And in addition to all that, my own phone gives me a reminder. I suppose I could cancel that in light of all the other reminders I get, but I'm sure if I do, all the others will become dysfunctional.
I understand their dilemma, but is there any point at which I can say that this is bordering on harassment?
