Besides 'Could I make an appointment with Dr ABC please?', what are the other ways you could make an appointment with your doctor?
Also, how do you go about asking when the doctor is avaible at a specific time? Do we say 'Is there a timeslot around 3 next Monday?' ?
You could say:
1. Could you tell me when Dr A is available?
2. I'd like to make an appointment with Dr A, please.
For a specific time, you could say:
3. Could I make an appointment with Dr A for Wednesday at 3, please?
(I hope this advice does not come too late.)
Is it natural to say this?
'What times are available on Wednesday?'
Also, would using 'timeslot' in contexts like this sound natural?
1. What times are available on Wednesday?
— yes, that would be fine.
— possibly not entirely suited to the context; it sounds more like something you would hear in an office.
(I hope you don't have to make too many visits.)
Just wondering. What could you say if you wanted to politely check how far behind schedule the doctor is with the patients?
Thank you again

PeaceblinkfriendWhat could you say if you wanted to politely check how far behind schedule the doctor is with the patients?You could say e.g. "Are the appointments running on time at the moment, or will there be a wait?"
