    So this nice doctor gave me his email and phone number so I could contact him regarding work experience. I decided to email him yesterday about it but he hasn't answered yet. Should I give him a text message or is that a bit too much ? Should I just wait ??

    Just send a follow-up email in a few days time. Tip: send at around 8-9am as this likely means it will be at the top of his inbox when he arrives at work in the morning.

    Give it 3 to 5 working days then chase him up via email, that’s a typical response time.

    Just wait - I really wouldn't worry at all. Assuming it is his work email, but even if it isn't, doctors get tons of emails - literally hundreds. They may also be away from their desks for most of the day. If you only emailed yesterday it's possible he hasn't even seen your email yet, much less had a chance to respond to it.

    Doctors tend to be very busy during weekdays. Don’t annoy him/her by spamming their inbox. They should reply within 2-5 days usually.
