Selecting a primary care physician is an important first step toward managing your health care. Your primary care doctor is your medical “home.” It’s the doctor you visit for most medical needs, including wellness visits and routine screenings, non-emergency illnesses like earaches and sore throats, and the person you speak to about your health questions and concerns.
Here are five tips for choosing a new primary care physician:
- Determine which doctors are “in-network”
- Find a doctor with expertise that meets your health needs.
- Ask for referrals.
- Think about logistics and convenience.
- Visit the doctor.
