Wait time for a specialist in Ontario

Last wednesday middle boy went to doctor. Doctor recommended he see a respirologist (pulmonologist) due to his asthma cough. We were told it might be about 4 to 6 weeks before we got an appointment.

Here is an update:

Respirologist's office called today and we see her next Wednesday, only 2 weeks after doctor recommended we see one. Cost $0.00 with no co-pays.

Not bad at all!

In the US, without healthcare, we could not afford to see a specialist regularly for our son. So.....poor boy often went without the medical help that would have helped him manage his asthma.
