Doctors are busy people. That’s a given.
What’s extremely frustrating to patients and caregivers is the seeming lack of communication among health-care providers. When Doctor A refers you to Doctor B who refers you to Doctor C and they aren’t on the same page, the end result can be exasperating, at best.
