From An Island Life:
  In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.
  If you’d like to participate, visit An Island Life answer the question and then post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

are you willing to wait, before you start to get upset 
My Answer:
45 min. …that’s why I always bring my book

  1. It can be 30 to 40 mins at busy times at our doctor's, but I could not read, I have to watch the little one. 🙂


  2. I agree with you. I can wait…and expect to wait about 30/45 minutes. After that, I start watching the clock and get irritated.

  3. In my doctor's office I've never had to really wait more than 10 minutes. Also, there's a sign on the wall that says if you had to wait more than 20 minutes please check up at the desk. Pretty cool. The only time I had to wait 1hr. was when I went in for out-patient surgery recently because the anesthesiologist was stuck in another surgery & did I want to wait an hour or get twilight sleep. I waited.

  4. I always take a book, but don't like to wait more than 15 minutes without an explanation. If they let me know what's going on, I'm willing to wait longer.

  5. After 15 to 20 mins I begin to get upset. Why? If I show up late, I have to reschedule, but if I'm on time I have to wait 30-45 mins. Trust me that ticks me off.

    yes I bring a book everywhere! Such a time saver!

  6. Thank goodness for my Kindle. I only have to wait for 1 Dr long, approx 45+ minutes, but all other Dr's, Dentist etc or almost immediate.

  7. I'm used to waiting, sometimes over 1 1/2 hrs., so I always take a book and the time flies.

  8. i hardly go to the dr. but if i had to wait more than 1/2 hr i would probably get irritated, but try to be understanding.. i did work in healthcare for awhile. 😉

  9. probably about an hour…to be honest, I have never really had that problem. the worst is if you go to a walk in clinic – they always seem to take forever, but as long as I can make an appt. I seem to get in fairly quickly…my ped's office will actually tell me if the doc. is behind.
