Any doctor recommended by a friend in DC is tough to see. If you’re a new patient, the chances of getting in within a 4 month window seem to be slim to none. If you are a regular patient, it’s often tricky to get an appointment earlier than a month out.
What happens if you have something that’s not emergency room crisis but also can’t wait a month? There are all shades of gray in between. The options are waiting to see if it gets to emergency room crisis level or tie up the emergency room when it’s not an emergency? This seems so inefficient.
There has got to be a better way.
