Finding a Doctor
When on the search for a good doctor, one of the many ways to get started is to ask the people at your job; after all, you all share the same insurance policies. The key to making the most out of this option is to pay close attention to those you ask, be sure to remember their likes and dislikes.
This process of asking people at your job will certainly make the job of finding a good doctor that much easier. For one, it will give you a major advantage or confidence booster considering that particular doctor(s) was recommended.
You should ask for as much information as possible without getting too involved with their personal relationship with that doctor. Ask for specifics on what it is they like and dislike about him/her.
For the most part, we spend more time at work than we do at home. Starting your journey of finding a good doctor at work is unquestionably worthwhile, but asking your friends and family will boost the odds greatly in your favor by cutting the searching time in half. You should ask them what hospital or doctor they go to, and even if they do not go to a certain doctor, still ask for any recommendations.
One major problem that a lot of people run into is having the proper insurance coverage. It sucks to finally find a good doctor, but that particular doctor is not covered by your insurance. Be sure to make sure to contact your provider of your insurance policy, and get the list of who is covered. That will also be the perfect time to ask for their policies regarding whether or not if you need a referral on which hospitals you are able to go to.
Calling your foundation is a great way to find a good doctor if you are plagued with a specific illness that requires a specialist. For example, lets say you have Lupus, you are going to want to call the Lupus Foundation to ask for Rheumatologists that are in your area and those that they would recommend you see first. This is also a great way to cut the time of finding a good doctor in half because if there ever was a complaint about that doctor they would get removed from the list of recommendations. The process of finding your good doctor may be tedious, but it is certainly worthwhile.
