This was a comment I received last week on one of my posts:
I am an Internal Medicine resident in the US, and considering a career in Primary Care. I have a question for those of you who are already practicing. I would like to limit the number of patients I see per day by having 30 minute encounters for follow ups, 15 minute for acute visits, and 1 hour for annual physical or new patient visits. I plan to request these time slots at interviews. How plausible would that request be?
I don't know if I have ever had a physician spend anywhere close to an hour with me, so I'm guessing not very. Any other wisdom?
