Shared doctor visits.

The latest in cost reduction and lowering the wait time is to "share appointments".

Would you discuss your medical problems .... your appointment with a room full of "other people"?

      Aug 12 2013: Salim, Look up ... shared medical visits ... on the web. It is a Wall Street Journal.com article that goes into depth about how this works.

      It seems to be gaining popularity. Say I have a rash on my arm. I can get a individual appointment in six weeks or a group appointment in three days or maybe less. I would try it.

      I may not want a group appointment for proctology ...nough said.

      The article explains it well. Be well. Bob.
