Finding the right physician is not an easy task. Your health is very important. You have to be comfortable with your doctor, because the consequences can be very serious. Not liking your doctor means there is a greater chance you would put off preventive care visits, avoid getting medical care when you need it or worse, discount the physician’s advice or treatment.
Make a list about what matters to you before you start looking for a doctor. What is important to some patients doesn’t matter to others. Do you care about the doctor’s age, gender or how long they have been practicing? Two things that should be on everyone’s list: What insurance they accept and where they are located. Make sure your doctor is in your network and practices where you live.
