Pediatrician Visits- Do You Feel Rushed?

How long did the pediatrician spend with your child at their last check-up?

For a third of children, the answer is 10 minutes or less, according to a new study.
Researchers at the University of California surveyed 2,000 families with kids aged 4 months to 2 years, and asked about their typical pediatrician's visit. The good news is, most parents reported being satisfied with their kids' care. But experts worry that these quickie visits could be hazardous to children's health, especially down the road.

Hey doc, what's the rush? Ten-minute children's checkups worry experts-

How long does your pediatrician spend in the room with you and your child during a routine visit?
