|I visited the doctors office yesterday and while waiting thought, "this place is miserable." I understand that a lot of people who visit them are miserable as well, but for crying out loud, the atmosphere of a waiting room at a doctors/dentists office is terrible.|
Everyone I've ever visited seems to be the same. The same television showing Dr. Oz or News, the same germ infected instant coffee thermos, the same uncomfortable chairs crammed so close to each other, the same three month old magazines, the same droll wallpaper and generic motivational framed pictures, the same.. you get the picture.
I got to thinking about it. About how to possibly improve these environments for both the customers and the doctors. Ways to possibly invest further in the atmosphere, equipment, sanitation, and technology. Ways doctors could leverage people (users) in their waiting rooms to recoup the costs of an upgrade investment (and potentially generate profits after breaking even). I've got a couple different ideas that are no doubt, "out there", but I think it's fun to play what if!
Do you hate waiting rooms? Do you think its a medium that should and could be disrupted?
