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

It varies, usually not very long. However if you go on Sunday it could be a couple of hours.

Not long usually, maybe around 5-10 minutes. Sometimes I have to wait a little longer in the room waiting on the pedi to come talk to us, but that's not usually too long either. My old pediatrician would take a good hour or more to see you. They were lousy.

The longest was about 10 minutes. I love morning appointments.

The last time I was there I waited over an hour. I was LIVID.

In the past I waited 10 minutes or less, but since our old doctor left (so sad!!!) and they replaced him it's been HORRIBLE. I can't wait for our old doctor to come back and open a new office.

Getting there to leaving takes 1-2 hours.

5-10 minutes, rarely on an emergency appointment like around 30 minutes.
