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

Usually 5 minutes or less. Occasionally a little bit longer but not by much.

Just long enough for my son to think that the waiting room is his own personal play room. *giggles* It isn't really all that long. 


We get in anywhere from immediately to about 15 minutes at most. 

My son's pediatrician is awesome!

Depends on the time of year and how busy it is. Summer time we were there (for a well child check up) 3.5 hours total. That was with an appt.

 I always get there at least 10 minutes early and I've only waited a few minutes to go back. There is a sign in the waiting room area that says if you are waiting longer than 20 minutes past your appointment time to notify the front desk. They are always very careful not to leave you waiting, especially bc they know you have kids.

Maybe 15 minutes. Normally 5-10.

about 10 minutes-unless we arrive early.  When she was a newborn (before her shots) they took us right into a room.  Now we wait in the waiting room but it is only about 10 minutes.

Once we get in the back, probably no more than 5-10 mins. They are really good about juggling patients and if they have a short consult, lots of times they'll knock it out before a long well child check up.

In over 3 years, we've only had to wait more than 10 minutes maybe twice.
