How long do you usually wait at a doctor's office? We normally don't wait long, but today the girls' eye doctor kept us waiting for more than an hour! I was so livid! I know things come up, but there was no emergency and I think that they just overbooked today.

At the pediatrician we are in and out. The dentist is usually a 20-25 minute wait.
Thank you Claire1979!

Really depends on the place.

Recently at the dermatology office, I waited 1.5 hours with all 3 kids because they overbook. That was "fun". But their pediatrician and dentist is usually within 1/2 hour. We haven't been to many other doctors with the kids.

I'm not that patient. If it has been thirty minutes, I'll go ask the receptionist how much longer the wait is and if we should rebook. I know things come up, but the overscheduling drives me nuts. Once I realized that three other parents in the waiting room with me had the same appointment time for the same doctor.

Our current pediatrician and dentist are good...only a few minutes usually.
