Doctors, run a Twitter search for your specialty and see how patients really feel - this "poll" costs nothing

Two patient perspective tweets from @om to follow:

om waiting for my new cardiologist at UCSF. he is 50 minutes late on our first appointment. not a good long term sign. worried. maybe switch?

Om Malikom and why is that doctors think there time is more important than others. I mean 50 minutes is 50 minutes

If you are a physician, it doesn't hurt to run a Twitter search for your specialty now and then to see how patients really feel. This "poll" costs nothing. For example, search for "allergist" and you will realize that pain from allergy shots may be a bigger issue that currently recognized.
