An appointment in weeks, or a doctor within minutes?

survey of physician practices in 15 metropolitan areas across the country, which was taken before the health law expanded coverage, found that the average wait time for a new patient to see a physician in five medical specialties was 18.5 days.

Here are New York’s findings:

Cardiology: 15 days

Dermatology: 24 days

Ob-Gyn: 10 days

Ortho: 9 days

Family Practice: 26 days
