If you have a doctor's appointment, you must use 1/2 day of sick time no matter what even if you schedule it before or after work and only miss 30-60 minutes of work. There is little flexibility to stay longer to make up the short amount of time missed.
it is ok benefit, including in vacation leave
I am PhD student here. So, the time is not strict. If I got a sick, I can just directly talk to my professor for some days leaving. We do not have any problem about sick days here.
