Part of my practice philosophy is also to be accommodating and complete in my treatment. Sometimes that accommodation is for the patient who has an emergency or maybe one who requires an unplanned procedure such as a cast or an injection during their visit in order to relieve pain and not delay their treatment until another scheduled appointment.
Occasionally complete and thorough evaluation simply requires additional or unplanned x-rays. These accommodations can sometimes result in an erratic office schedule. The benefits for my patients are that those in greatest need are helped as soon as possible and care is thorough and complete. One never knows when they will be the patient in need of such flexibility.
If my schedule ever creates a situation where I am behind, I promise to you that your visit quality will not be compromised or rushed and that I will listen attentively and do my best to solve your problem once our visit begins. I will respect you as well as the time, effort, and expense that you have committed to me and my practice.
