Gone are the times when, to make an appointment with the doctor, you had to go there in person, something a bit absurd when, to tell the truth, if you need to go to the doctor, the only thing you want is to have to leave home. Appointments over the phone were soon activated, which was of great benefit to all patients. But the day came when the mobile phone landed between us, changing everything. And, of course, now we can request the appointment from our mobile without major problem.
In some cases we can download an application with which to request and manage our appointments. In others, we will have to go directly to our Internet browser. Be that as it may, you will only need the Internet so that your doctor can attend you as soon as possible. We are going to tell you how to make an appointment with the doctor in the main cities of Spain so you don't have to make any effort.
