I recently found this info-graphic on pinterest that illustrates the amount of time in general that doctors spend with patients, and in that time who does the most talking. It says that the average amount of time that doctors spend with patients is about 10 minutes. And that 64% of that time is spent by the doctor doing the talking. I just think that is crazy to think that 10 minutes is enough time to really address any kind of medical issue, let alone diabetes! How many of you feel like your doctor should be spending more time with you at each visit?
(sorry, I couldn't find the original infographic so the link is to the pinterest one.)
