Example text

One practitioner may decide that 30 minutes is ample time to conduct a thorough examination and to provide the best care that a patient needs. If there are further tests that need to be conducted then this practitioner will ask the patient to return on another day. Another practitioner may deem this to be insufficient time to do the very best for certain patients and may make appointments that are 45 minutes long to ensure that all necessary tests can be conducted on the same day. This would probably be more convenient for the patient, and the second practitioner may appear to be showing a greater level of beneficence.

Insurance is needed to underwrite any expenses that may arise from such incidents.
