• Parking

    Asked by Peroll on Sunday, June 2, 2013


    When I go to the Dr or the hospital there are lots of parking spots marked "Patient", but I am usually in a hurry and rather impatient so I don't know where to park. I would think that there might be some spots right up front for those of us who are in a hurry and Impatient?

      Well maybe you can listen to some meditation music as you go to help you relax as your not doing yourself any favors by getting wound up. if you can do it, park as far away as possible to boost your walking and exercise..Its a easy tip to try and put into your day.

      I find great meditation cd's at resale shops for a 1.00 to 2.00 can't beat it.

      Hey Peroll, I call that spot, "The Fire Lane". Ha, you can always park there,...once.

      I'm lucky, I can walk or take the bus to the hospital. When I have infusion therapy DH drives the car down so I don't have to deal with those issues. But I do know how you feel, I am a very impatient person myself. I'm getting better about being zen about things taking more time that I want, I don't always succeed. Listing to calming music and taking deep breaths helps.

      I'm also impatient, but try to find a parking space under a tree, even if that is the furthest from the clinic.

      My center doesn't have patient parking. Just Drs, (always full and closest to the door), the requisite handicapped (always empty and next in line) and then the places for the rest of us.

      Greg, Around here when you use the special fire lane parking they have this valet like service that comes and moves your car to a remote guarded parking facility. They don't have it all figured out yet as they won't bring your car back around, you have to go find it, and they charge an outrageous price!!

      LOL!! Very funny! My local hospital actually has a section for oncology patients that is pretty near the door; however, I always found it annoying as XXX that my specialty cancer hospital had terrible parking & terrible valet, and when i had to be there for surgery at 4:30 A.M. the valet service wasn't open, so I had to park & drag my overnight bag along. Grrr! Does that make me an "impatient?"

      Ha, ha! Maybe if you left the house earlier you might be patient when you arrived.

      The overpriced valet service is the impatient option at my hospital, too. Hop out and leave your car at the curb. They do bring your car back afterwards, but you definitely need to be patient for that step!
