The average weight time to see a primary care doctor is 19 days. And after waiting nearly 3 weeks to be seen, typical lobby wait times are 1-2 hours. Then, if you're lucky, you'll get 5 minutes with your doctor. People are frustrated and deserve more. This show will give you everything you need for you and your doctor to have meaningful conversations. And, frankly, some of these conversations might just save your life.
