I once heard that the #1 reason there are more otd's in lakewood than in bp is: mincha in shoimer shabbos takes 8 minutes, while in kol shimshon it takes 22. Same for maariv.

Caveat? On a rosh chodesh that falls on a workday only. On Shabbos or Sunday its ok?

No, not even on Shabbos. And no mishebeirachs in between aliyas either. They are not necessary. And even for cholim, send in the name to the gabai before shabbos.

In my Shul the Gabbai says Mi Sheberach out loud then pauses when he get's to the name and everyone says the names quietly to themselves...
