first off: if you arrived at 3:15 & left at 4, you were only there a total of 45 min!! second... her patients are her job!! you want to re write your thread so it makes some sense!! she is a good caring doc. your loss!

You were there 3 hours but arrived at 315 and left at 4?
That's only 45 minutes. A total of 45 minutes at the doctor's office? Sounds reasonable to me. What do you mean she puts her job over her patients? That makes no sense. I don't know who Dr. Applegate is but you're an idiot.

As a patient of this dr. I have never waited less than 3 hours in the waiting room, then at least 45 minutes in the room waiting for dr. applegate to come in and see me.
While in the waiting room, the other patients are all complaining about the wait!

I have waited at doctor offices for 5 hours before and 8 hours at the emergency room. Waiting is one of the hazards of going to see a doctor unless you are bleeding to death or having a heart attack. Get over it, it will happen at any doctors office.

The wait at Applegate's office is horrendous. Three hours is typical, sometimes longer. I walked out of the last appointment when I found people who had appointments ahead of mine still hadn't been taken to a room 3 hours after their scheduled appointment. They even suggested that I carry a cell phone so I could "do something else" and they would call me about a half hour before I could be seen. Sorry Dr. Applegate, I don't have the whole day to waste in West Plains waiting. Her nurses actually deliver a lecture that long waits are to be expected and that complaining is not appropriate. What's the point in making an appointment when you won't keep it? My time is just as valuable as yours. No other doctor at OMC (including other specialists) has this problem from my experience. Thankfully I found another neurologist who has office hours at TCMH in Houston. That appointment was honored on-time and the quality of care was as good if not better. The argument that Dr. Applegate is slowed down by new patients is bogus. Her "new patient day" is Thursday, or so we were told. The long waits are an ongoing problem. The last visit I actually waited for was not good. She had not reviewed tests done or emergency room treatments and she miswrote a prescription which thankfully the pharmacy managed to straighten out.

I like to call her Dr. Druggs, just because she likes to put you on every drug that is out there. What so now I'm supposed to be a pill popper for your guess work. No Thank You.

I wonder if your mom was in the ER having a stroke. Would you want Dr Applegate in the ER or seeing her patients in the clinic first?
How about an emergency else where in the hospital?
So first get your story right. The times don't match. As we use to say, prior planning prevents piss poor performance! Or have you ever heard the phrase; Plan ahead!

I personally am not a fan of her. She did not get my diagnoses right and the meds I got made me really sick. It could have been that she was having an off day. But overall, I think she should pay closer attention, just to prevent mistakes like this. It could have been much worse.
