Information for Patients

How to Choose a Provider

Considerations:

  • Office location and convenience to your home or place of employment
  • Convenient office hours
  • Specialties offered
  • Physician credentials to consider:
    • Medical school and undergraduate degree
    • Board Certification
    • Fellowship
    • Areas of Interest

What kind of physician is right for you?

You can choose your doctor from a variety of primary care specialties, depending on your health needs. For instance, women might wish to choose an obstetrician/gynecologist (OB/GYN), who specializes in childbirth and women's health care. An internal medicine provider may be the best fit if you prefer a specialized focus on the prevention and treatment of adult health issues. If you have children, a pediatrician whose patients range from newborns to teenagers may be right for you. Or, you may prefer a family medicine physician who will be responsible for your entire family's health needs and will refer you to specialists as necessary.

Regardless of your choice, there are some things you can do to help ensure the relationship between you and your physician is a good one:

Be Honest. Your physician needs accurate information to give you the best care. Your health is personal, so it's important to find someone you can be open and honest with.

Ask Questions. Medical treatment can often be complicated, but you have the right to know about your health situation and to have your questions answered until you fully understand what is involved. Asking questions also shows your doctor that you are interested and willing to be an active participant in your health care.
