The best option is having a seperate table for the hours, especially if
your working with time blocks during the day. We have in the doctors table
the start and end time for each day of the week in the same table, but have
a second table to associate time blocks during the day(i.e. only accept
certain type of appointments for a given time frame for a doctor)

Also, check out the SIMPL scheduler component from Customizable Components
(, this is what we use and the best on the market that
I've seen. Take a look at our software ( to see how we
have it implemented and their support is as good as IBO's.

Just so that you don't get scared when I mentioned doctors, I'm relating to
optometrists, ophthalmologists and opticians. Our software is made for
that sector of the medical industry.

Good luck in your project.
