Simply enter your appointment information and we will send you the wait time an hour or less before your appointment.
We provide a platform to allow patients, like you, and doctors to share what is going on in the waiting room in real-time.
We are available to help any patient for any doctor, anytime or anywhere in the United States.
Most importantly, this service is absolutely FREE. In exchange, all we ask is that you help others by sharing your patient experience when you are at the doctor’s office. Doctors can also broadcast their wait time for free.
Healthcare is unpredictable. Unfortunately, even though doctors try to run on time, emergencies happen, conversations take longer than expected, and delays do occur. While most patients understand that delays are inevitable, they would like to be informed when they happen. WaitChecker keeps patients informed by allowing patients and doctors to communicate these delays.
The wait time information can consist of your doctor’s official wait time, a patient’s recent experience, and if your doctor would like you to arrive later than your scheduled appointment time. Once you have been informed, you can decide how to plan your day.
It is up to your doctor whether you can arrive after your scheduled appointment time. If your doctor would like you to arrive late, we will specifically relay this information to you.
This service is absolutely free. We will do whatever we can to get the wait time information for your doctor prior to your appointment. We need doctors to communicate their official wait times and patients to share information from the waiting room to help patients coming in later that day. So, please share what is going on in the waiting room and let's make a difference together.
Just simply respond to the email or text message you get when you are at the doctor's office. For more info, see How It Works. Doctors, Contact Us to learn how you can broadcast your official wait time for free.
