The green dots on the schedule screen in my primary care office light up in rapid succession. All of my patients are arriving.
“Don’t look too hard at the board, it will just stress you more about the busy schedule,” I think to myself. Still, I note that one patient arrived early and will be waiting for a long time before he sees me. And one mom brought her newborn baby. I don’t want them to sit too long in the waiting room, particularly when we are trying to socially distance patients during Covid-19.
