Newly Launched myQuickDoc.com Eliminates Doctor-Office Wait
San Antonio, TX, Jan 22, 2013 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) --
Patients are losing patience with long waits in doctors' offices. This exasperating experience is pricey: Americans spend four hours annually waiting for medical care, with waits averaging 45 minutes, calculates the American Time Use Survey. Lost wages from waiting: An estimated $5 billion annually.
Welcome to a new online remedy aimed at eliminating doctor-office waits: Created by San Antonio family physician Roger Moczygemba, myQuickDoc is designed for busy professionals, executives, single parents and other people who want to see a doctor without having to wait. Combining the use of Internet scheduling with doctors' desire to enhance customer service, here's how it works:
Patients register at http://www.myquickdoc.com, providing the reason for their visit, their medications and past medical history. Next they choose a doctor listed on the myQuickDoc network, selecting an available doctor appointment time. The visit is confirmed after an online payment.
"Since patients have made an advanced payment of the convenience fee online, the doctor agrees to see them at the specified time," explains Moczygemba. They then bring their insurance information to the doctor's office, pay their co-pay, and the doctor's office processes their insurance in the usual manner."
Trained in family practice in the Navy, Moczygemba M.D., used his longtime business-development interest to develop myQuickDoc, in response to today's changing environment in medicine. Part of a large San Antonio primary care group, he is sharing this cutting-edge concept with physician colleagues.
"In these times, in order for a doctor to be successful, he must do more than make good grades in medical school and hang a shingle," notes Moczygemba. "Doctors need to extend themselves to their patients on terms that patients demand."
To schedule an interview with Moczygemba or for patient comments about myQuickDoc, contact Boyd Burton at 817-721-7146 or bburton(at)myquickdoc(dot)com.
