    Would you rather a patient call you on the phone if they have a simple question about their medication? Or would you rather they made an appointment? I am not sure if I am annoying my doctor or not by phone calls (he does not seem very happy to return calls) but what should you do if you have just been to see him a week ago?
    Thanks for any suggestions, Vicky

    Vicky, I know dr's don't like to return calls, but I think it's a part of the service they provide. I don't think you should make an appt for a simple question.

    What I suggest is to ask your dr the best time to call if you have a question about medication. Sometimes they have part of the day when they are doing paperwork or whatever. That might help, but don't think you are being a pest because weather they like it or not it's part of their job....

    Thanks for the reply!! I noticed Madwolf did not reply-Whats up with that? Maybe he doesn't like those phone calls either. I think men in general do not like the phone.
    Thanks, Vicky
