When not to go to the doctorPublished 9/6/2005

Are you busy trying to cram in commutes on both ends of the day, tied up with family obligations and personal appointments?

Most people try to calculate the least-busy time to work ‘real life’ activities into their schedules. Take seeking patient care at hospitals.

If you want to avoid the busiest days and hours, don’t go on Mondays. Don’t show up at 11 a.m.

The nation’s largest hospital-focused provider of language services, CyraCom, has compiled its mid-year statistics.

Data from more than 700 hospitals across the country was analyzed to identify the busiest day and hour.

"Never visit on a Monday, if you have a choice," said CyraCom CEO Michael D. Greenbaum.

"And Tuesday is the runner-up. Avoid mornings because 11 a.m. is the busiest hour of the day, followed by 8 a.m."

Hospital representatives echo this advice.
