How to locate a doctor?
There is no magical route to finding the right doctor. If you’ve got a primary care physician just call him or her and make an appointment. If you do not have a primary care physician, try the route suggested above. In the old days most patients would ask their primary care doctor for a referral. Although this is still done, more and more patients are going directly to a specialist for their medical needs.
Tips on how to look for a physician
Figure out the history of medical symptoms or diseases that run in your loved ones, or ones you or your relatives may currently have.
As soon as you have identified the issue, let us say a history of asthma, you may want to find a primary care provider who is (double) Board Certified in “Pulmonary Disease” and “Internal Medicine.”
Depending on how far you are willing to travel, and which kind of doctor you are searching for, look for three hospitals near your home. Then go to Google and type in their names. Most hospitals have sites which feature a physician directory.
If you are searching for a specialist, like a plastic surgeon, or a dermatologist, by way of example, use (example) your three favorite search engines and type: “Florida Dermatologist,” or “Florida Miami Dermatologist.” You may want to switch the wording around and try a few different procedures.
Make sure your doctor is Board Certified , and that his or her respective area of specialization is recorded, by consulting with the American Board of Medical Specialists official directory of experts, published by Marquis Who’s Who. The ABMS directory can be found at most public libraries, in addition to hospital, university and medical libraries.
Next, see the Federation of State Medical Boards (online) to see if any critical disciplinary action was taken against the doctor you have chosen.
Where can I research my doctor?
Once you have chosen a doctor, you have many options. Most patients like to run a background
check on the doctor they’ve chosen. The best place to do this study is the Federation of State Medical Boards.
What makes a fantastic doctor?
According to my extensive research over the last five decades, my recommended criteria for finding a good doctor are:
the amount of years since the doctor received his/her MD or DO.
Whether the physician is Board Certified or double Board Certified in his/her respective specialty field.
In the case of a surgeon, a high volume of surgical procedures he/she has finished.
Physicians who have had one or no malpractice suits, with no disciplinary actions taken against them.
Doctors who are associated with at least one medical society related to their specialty.
