Urban Physicians Expand Hours for Busy Working Patients

A new article on the New York Times website explores after-hours beauty treatments and the expanding work schedules of dermatologists, cosmetic surgeons and other aesthetic professionals.

“In most major cities, if you want pad Thai or a sweater dry-cleaned when most people are sleeping, there’s someone who will take care of it (for a price). These days, the same is true of beauty treatments,” writes columnist Kayleen Schaefer.

One of the doctors featured in the story, Dr. Neil Sadick, says his busy patients have been asking for early morning and late evening appointments; “Patients used to be able to get out of work when they wanted to, but things have changed,” so he has also changed, adjusting his office hours to be more convenient.

Extended hours may be expected in “the city that never sleeps,” but is the same true for plastic surgeons in Munster or Valparaiso, Indiana? According to Dr. Robinson, some of the same changes are happening here. “We have adjusted our hours to accommodate our patients,” he says.

The doc explains: “We are very sensitive to the time constraints work and family has placed on our patients. In an effort to give them more options, we have been offering late appointments once a month. We have found this to be well received and are considering expanding this to twice a month. Our patients appreciate the flexibility this gives them when their schedules do not permit morning or afternoon appointments.”
