I will give you my card if you need to call again…

Filed under: Miscellaneous,People — ramsblog @ 10:43 am

I was at a doctor’s office yesterday for an appointment I had made few days ago. After a few minutes of consultation/discussion with him, we decided to follow up a few months later again. Anyways, at the end of the conversation he offered me his business card.

I often wonder why doctors’ office offer the business cards when it was a fact that I made a phone call to make an appointment to see that doctor. So that means. I already either have their card or have called them on their phone. Obviously business card does not have his direct line or email or whatsoever. So I would still have to call the clinic’s number in general and they are open only during the week days between 9am to 4pm. Also, the receptionist would give out the papers having the clinic’s phone and fax numbers on.

so, I just assumed that’s another card to either pass on to some one as a reference or keep it somewhere at home and still search when I need it further. hehe…



  1. Ha Ha.. I think the idea of giving their business card is to share their personal mobile numbers with you.. Atleast here in India, not every gives their card.
    On the other had, lot of people give out their mobile numbers in public…

    and there is almost no-landline concept exist in India now-a-days!

  2. @Veena,
    apparently doctors in the US don’t give out their personal numbers. It is usually via their office or the answer centers. It is often out of chance to get the doctors on phone over the week ends and week nights. I don’t know if they are supposed to be like that or any other reason. We get to talk to the assistant nurse, who sometimes mis-interpete what we say. My recent experience on a Surgery appointment when I was running fever at 102. 🙂
