Do you need some time with the Doctor? ???  At times, there are several issues you may wish to discuss at your appointment. If you anticipate that your consultation may be longer than usual please let the receptionist know at time of making the appointment. It is for your benefit if staff can  ensure that the correct amount of time can be allocated for your consultation with the doctor.

Do you have forms to fill out??? Documentation and Forms required to be completed by your doctor generally also necessitate a longer time. Dropping of the forms for completion will not happen. It is preferable to make a correctly allocated appointment time so that these forms can be completed correctly by both you and the doctor together.
