Being a “checker” at Mayo during a pandemic

Has anyone had any luck waiting in the lobby for an appointment? I drove 9 hours due to an orthopedic problem to find out I have an appointment with a rehab doctor and not an orthopedic doctor. They scheduled an appointment in the future that will require another trip (and another $1,000 or so) but told me to visit the lobby everyday to see if they can fit me in while I am here. Has anyone ever got to see a doctor like this?
Thank you!

Hi Jay, you'll notice that I moved your question to this discussion in the Visiting Mayo Clinic group. Yes, that's how the checker system works and often quite successfully. I'm hoping that @bernese53 will return to share her experience with being a checker. @roch @csjolundjr @amandajro or @dandl48 may also be able to add some thoughts.
