What part of being a doctor is your least favorite?

The part I don't like about being a doctor is not having enough time to give as much service as I would like. We have to plan our day, and I leave enough time to see my patients, give a treatment, and (hopefully) jot a note so I know what I did and remember my observations for next time. We have to see enough patients to keep our doors open, and insurance is getting closer and closer to giving charity. I see one pt per half hour. A few things get in the way:

1) Patients being late- that creates a domino effect, affecting all the other patients

2) Patients wanting a laundry list of problems addressed at once- not always possible

3) Patients wanting to chitchat about non-relevant issues
