Tips for Finding a Provider
Finding the right doctor is important, but it doesn’t have to be difficult. Here are a few guidelines to make the search a little easier.
Talk to people
Ask your friends and family for a recommendation. Do they have a doctor they love? This is a great place to start. But remember that every patient and every situation is different. Just because a doctor is right for someone you know, that doesn’t mean he or she is right for you.
Make sure your doctor is qualified and experienced in the areas that matter to you. Visit the doctor profile page on our website to learn about a doctor’s education and training, specialities, and board certifications.
Finding a doctor close to home can make a big difference when your health situation requires frequent visits.
Not all doctors are able to accept new patients. Make a phone call to his or her office and find out if appointments are available.
Check your insurance
Not every doctor accepts every insurance plan. Make sure your doctor accepts yours before you begin a relationship.
Talk to your doctor
On your initial visit, ask questions. Get to know him or her to find out if their areas of interest and expertise line up with your needs.
Trust your instincts
Feeling comfortable with your doctor is perhaps the most important consideration of all. Make sure your new physician is someone your can share intimate details with – and who will listen when you do.
