Insatiable patients are never satisfied. They have many questions, and despite adequate explanations, they feel that the interviewer has not answered all their questions. They tend to be very sensitive, anxious individuals. These patients are best handled with a firm, nonconde-scending approach. A definite closing statement is helpful, such as ''We have reached the end of our time for today, but I will be back.'' Alternatively, the interviewer could say, ''We have reached the end of our time for today. I will refer your concerns to Dr._.''
