Seven Minute Visits

In today's NYTimes, The Doctor Will See You Now for Exactly Seven Minutes.

You may think that this is exaggeration, but I was briefly a part of a practice that literally had a 7 minute limit on patient visits. If I did not leave a patient room after 7 minutes, the office staff was instructed to page me out. Needless to say, I could not tolerate the practice for long and left after a few months.
