  2. The patient must present themselves during normal business hours
  3. Because of items 1 & 2 it may be several days before a patient can see a psychologists
  4. A shortage of psychologist in rural / small towns in the USA
  5. A shortage of psychologist after hours and on site in rural areas

  1. Patient allowed to present themselves at any time of the day
  2. Patient does not have to travel to a physical location to present themselves
