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

Texas, right on the Mexican border. Most people here have their kids on Medicaid so the doctors can't drop them and people know it so they'll come late to their appointments and that backs everything up.


Quoting rwebb11:

Where do you live?

60-90 minutes. Fastest place I've been seen here, freaking hate it.

Hi rwebb11!


I am sorry to read that you had to wait so redicously long! The longest that on average  to wait was 3 minutes. There was only once when they were short staffed I had to wait for an hour.

If this a re-occuring issue, I'd reccommend in finding a new clinic to take them to.

I live in Texas too, but the Fort Worth area. When I read that it sounded so similar to me I wondered if it was a geographical thing.

At my old one, it was anywhere from 15-25 minutes usually. At our new one, it's usually within five minutes, but my daughter hates that they take us back so quickly as they have a big slide in the waiting room. She could play in there all day!
