On average how long do you have to wait when you take your kids to the pediatricians office?

maybe 10 minutes -unless I arrive early. I found that I would aim to be there 15-20 minutes early and then would wait til  maybe 5 minutes after our appointment time. It always made me cranky to wait that long - so I started to try and stop getting there that early.

I have had to wait over an hour the last 3 times we have gone. I am getting a bit annoyed and even though I love my pediatrician, I'm considering switching because this is a long time to wait with a 14 month old.

That is what I thought. When he was an infant they always got him back super quick and wait time slowly got longer and longer one time we waited almost 2 hours.
