How to Choose a Primary Care Doctor
A MedStar primary care physician is your best asset when it comes to living a strong, healthy life. Since your primary care physician is often involved in your care for a long time, you want to choose someone who can be the first person you call if you have a health problem. So, how do you find a doctor who meets your expectations and needs?
Focus on What You Need and Want.
It is important to chose a doctor with whom you can be comfortable and honest. We also recommend finding a doctor who listens carefully to your concerns, explains things clearly, and shows you respect. The doctor also should allow you to ask questions and should provide answers that you can understand.
Choose an Expert.
You want to make sure your primary care physician is board certified. This means—like MedStar’s board-certified physicians—they had additional training after medical school and passed an exam certifying them as experts in their field.
Consider Location, Logistics, and Money.
It’s also a good idea to ask:
- What insurance do you accept?
- Who sees patients when you are out of town?
- How long does it take to get an appointment for a routine visit or urgently-needed care?
Choose a MedStar primary care physician today that will focus on you, so you can focus on living your best life.
When You Need A Specialist
You may be looking for a more specialized doctor who has additional experience in a specific area relevant to your needs. For example, you may be looking for a doctor who specializes in women’s health specialist, with sensitivity to menopausal women. Or, maybe you’re looking for a doctor with expertise in diabetes, or rehabilitation for heart conditions.
MedStar primary care physicians work closely with other specialists to coordinate your care if you need more specialized treatment. Not only that, they can help you make important care decisions. Your trusted primary care physician can explain your treatment options and make recommendations best for you, since they’re familiar with your medical history and preferences.
