4 Steps to Choosing a Family Doctor
So it’s time to find a family doctor or general practitioner – someone who can help your whole family, adults and children, stay healthy. What should you be looking for?
- Location. Should you look for a doctor closer to home, to your work or to your kids’ school? Which will be most convenient for you?
- Insurance Network. Check with your insurance provider to make sure this doctor is in the network – it will be less expensive than visiting an out-of-network doctor.
- Access to a Health System. If you will ever need a specialist or a hospital procedure (most of us will in our lifetimes), it’s often easier to get a referral a when your doctor is connected with a comprehensive health system.
- Personality. Of course, you want a doctor you feel comfortable with. Look up your potential doctors on review sites like HealthGrades, RateMDs or Vitals. It’s also OK to make appointments with a few different doctors to find one you like.
