It was a nice re-read. Read it a long time ago. Yes some homeopaths take that much time to make sure what they are doing is right to the last detail. I can remember reading a top surgeon telling the interviewer that if he was given only three minutes to do a major complicated operation, he would spend first two minutes to analyse the situation and plan about how to go about the whole thing and would only spend the remaining one minute to execute the plan.
Even a little less time will do in simple cases and some time could be saved in this age with computerised repertorisation or searching hints about any medicine for a particular situation electronically--skimming books can comparatively take more time. But some doctors say when they have a couple of hundred patients they can't give so much time. But they will have to do homeopathy the right way, otherwise the results would be mediocre leaving both the doctor and the patient frustrated. This is reflected when patient says we went to so and so doctor or this/that famous doctor but yet we did not get results.

As a patient/client I obviously prefer the skilled homeopath that takes more time to select the remedy than the homeopath that does not take enough time but as you have pointed out the key is the skill of the homeopath. The unskilled homeopath may take as much time as he/she wants and never find the correct remedy (or series of remedies). I assume technical advances such as homeopathic software will help but as the saying goes "garbage in, garbage out". I also wonder how many homeopaths check the materia medica to confirm the remedy selected by software programs is correct.
I realize if the homeopath has many patients the homeopath has to use the available time wisely.
