A new survey on the access to timely care in pediatric subspecialties found:


  • 68% of children’s hospitals experience difficulty scheduling endocrinology visits; the average wait time is over 10 weeks
  • 61% report difficult scheduling neurology visits; the average wait time is 9 weeks
  • 50% report difficulty scheduling developmental pediatrics visits; the average wait time is over 13 weeks – one of the subspecialties with the longest wait times
