Medical appointment and consultation is of necessity in the field of medicine which gives the doctor the opportunity to access, examine, test and diagnose a patient of an ailment or diseases. Several researches have been done in this domain whereby some researches allow a patient to book an appointment with a particular doctor and majority of these researches only handle the appointment section of the work. This prompted the researcher to delve into a real-time appointment scheduling whereby a patient only fixes a time and date and the system allocate a doctor available at that particular time and date and also handles the rescheduling of patients with doctors.
