Tips for Selecting a Doctor

Choosing a doctor for you or your family’s healthcare needs can be overwhelming. Here are a few tips to help you get started.

  1. Location – if you visit a doctor frequently, look for a physician that has an office either near your home or work. Having someone close by can help, especially when unexpected healthcare needs or illnesses arise.
  2. Insurance – It is important to find a physician that accepts your healthcare insurance. This will help you avoid “out of network” charges and fees. Click here to see a list of insurances accepted by our doctors.
  3. Patient Satisfaction Scores – Before selecting a doctor check out their online patient satisfaction ratings available on each physician profile. The ratings are based on several factors including:
    • Provider spent enough time
    • Provider explained things clearly
    • Provider listened carefully
    • Provider gave understandable instructions
    • Provider showed respect
  4. Appointment Availability – Are you looking for a physician with same day/next day access or are you comfortable with scheduling your appointment out a week or two in advance? Check our online appointment scheduling system for availability.
  5. Friend or Family Recommendation – Talk to your friends and family about what doctors and caregivers they use. This is a great starting point!
