Unfortunately the length of an appointment block is set in the globals’ Calendar settings, the ‘calendar interval’ item, so they apply to all providers’ calendars. You could do a work around by setting the basic interval , for your example, at 10 minutes, then for Dr A, make their visit occupy 3 intervals; Dr B’s appointments would occupy 1 interval, and Dr C’s 2.

Creating ‘visit categories’ might be one way to accomplish this without having the scheduler manually select the number of intervals for each provider’s encounter.
