GONZALEZ CARNERO, Raquel et al. Doctor, I don't have an appointment: Can you see me?. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2012, vol.5, n.3, pp.202-205. ISSN 2386-8201.

A patient without an appointment is quite a common occurrence in Primary Health care, and can be a problem. These patients test the family doctor, as he/she has to be able to judge whether the appointment should, or should not, be delayed, while at the same time giving healthcare education, so that the patients learn to follow the usual channels to obtain care. We invite reflection and show that in spite of being a last-minute consultation, it is no less important, which is why we should dedicate the necessary time to carry out a proper clinical interview and make a differential diagnosis, ruling out any important pathologies which our last patient of the morning could be suffering from.

Keywords : Primary Health Care; Proffesional-Patient Relations; Pulmonary Embolism.
