The civilian Air Force physicians are getting fed up too. I had a conversation this past week with a friend of mine who is working as a civilian contract physician at an AF Base. She has only been there for about 5 months and is already getting fed up with all the "BS" and is planning on quitting as soon as she finds something else to do. She is very frustrated with all the frivolous middle of the night telephone calls from patients for trivial complaints. Yes, she is required to be on call for the military FP clinic. She complained of long hours spent completing paperwork, after having been promised an 7-3 work schedule. USAFdoc is right.
