May be this is due to the network connection with SQL Server. or Optimize the SQL query by putting index

SELECT column_list FROM table_name WITH (INDEX (index_name) [, ...]);

share your query and try to run it in ssms.
Also please check the execution plan and see what is the disk read cost and cpu cost.

This kind of problem in generally with query, also try writing SP for that so that Execution plan can be pregenerated.

Before disposing the connection object, close it. This should be done throughout the application.

Are there any other queries running at the same time on one of the same tables? There could be a lock that it's waiting for.

For the record this is a very bad solution and should never be used.  It translates to:  "I don't care how long the query takes the user can wait indefinitely."  There are far better ways of solving this problem.
