Finding a Primary Care Doctor: Things to Consider

You need a doctor whom you can communicate with — one who takes time to listen and fully understands your health care needs.

The following may help you decide on the right primary care doctor for you and your family.

  • Convenience:
    • Is the physician's office convenient to your home, work, or children's school?
    • Do the office hours meet your needs?
  • Provider preferences:
    • Do you prefer your family doctor to be an internist or a family practitioner?
    • Do you prefer a male or female physician?
    • Are the physician’s credentials — such as medical education, residency, and board certification — important to you?
  • Practice size and options:
    • Do you prefer a large practice with many doctors or a smaller practice?
    • Do you need access to specialty physicians or have any special health concerns?
    • What kind of health insurance will you be using?
