What questions should a new patient ask the doctor?
When you are seeking a new doctor, it is always important to find one who you can talk to and feel comfortable with. Some people may need to have embarrassing and awkward conversations at some point in their doctor-patient relationship.
The patient will also need to determine what they are looking for in a doctor, including location, hours, parking, medical insurance processing and many other factors that can impact the patient’s ability to visit their doctor when needed. Depending on the doctor’s clinic set up, there may be multiple doctors working in the clinic. Understanding how appointments are booked in terms of which doctor the patient will see is an important factor for many patients.
Patients may also want to inquire on the doctor’s appointment cancellation policy, last minute appointment availability and type of appointments available, including in-person and virtual.
Everyone has their own unique needs when it comes to their health and well-being, and it is important to find a doctor who has similar ideals and approaches to health and medicine.
Patients who have chronic or complex medical conditions will want to find a doctor who has experience and knowledge with their conditions, in order to provide the best ongoing medical care. Additionally, patients who have or are planning on having children may also want to know about the age range of the patients that the doctor treats for the convenience of having their whole family being treated by the same doctor.
How do I find the right doctor in my location?
Finding a new doctor might be overwhelming for some people. Some people may need a new doctor due to retirement, a move, or a host of other reasons. Depending on the reason, there are many different routes people can go in their search for a new doctor.
Many cities have a database of currently practicing doctors, that may indicate which doctors are accepting new patients, available to residents. This can help narrow down the list and simplify the process of finding nearby clinics and doctors, without the need to call around to inquire about doctors accepting patients.
When looking for a doctor, make a list of the traits in a doctor and doctor’s office that matter to you. Some things to think about include their location, hours of operation, parking, convenience, number of doctors on staff and medical insurance processing policies.
When looking at these factors, decide what is the most important and narrow down the potential list based on that. Asking around to your friends, family, neighbors and even coworkers for recommendations on doctors can provide some additional insights into the doctor themselves, from a personal experience perspective.
By asking people you know for their recommendations, this gives you the opportunity to ask questions about the traits of a doctor in order to help you gain insight to their personality and bedside manner.
Feel free to book a meet and greet appointment with the doctor or doctors that you are interested in prior to making your final decision to ensure that you are comfortable with the doctor, and you are aligned on their approach to your health and wellbeing.
Additionally, if you live in the area, then you should consider Midlands Family Urgent Care as we are home to a leading team of healthcare professionals.
