Reduce your wait time

Not all wait times are the same, and you may reduce your wait time for health care services. Explore options and talk to your doctor or nurse practitioner.

Talk to your primary care provider

Wait time information can help you and your primary care provider make informed decisions. Find wait times and share the numbers with your healthcare provider.
