@angela_conacher , just because they are running late shouldn’t be your problem!
However, you should prepare for your appointments. You should prepare a short, concise list of symptoms, which you can leave with them. Also Make a list of questions/concerns you may have.
You can tick these questions off as they are answered. Just don’t allow yourself to be bullied out of the door until all questions.concerns are addressed.
Also, go accompanied. Two pairs of ears are better than one!
