Once you and your physician choose a provider, a referral can be made.
The time it takes for you to be seen after the referral is called the T1 wait time. You may or may not need testing, and the time to wait for testing is the T2 wait time.
Once you choose a treatment, the time that it takes for you to receive the treatment is the T3 wait time. And finally, your provider will want to see you after the treatment, and this wait time is T4.
