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?

  1. 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?
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
