I completely expect to have to wait when I take my daughter (or myself) to the doctor, but I purposely made an appointment really early in the day (8:30) so that I would be seen rather quickly and we did not leave until 10:20 (and the appointment only took 5 minutes!). This is very common. I've never had less than a 45 min. wait in the waiting room - even after the 45 min. I had another 30 min. wait in the patient's room. I have a 4 month old that I breastfeed and it's very inconvenient to keep us that long.
