I always ask friend etc. what doctor they go to....I look for a pleasant,honest physician that will speak to you with concern and not be scribbling things on your chart,asking a few questions, write your perscription and starts for the door while you give him your answers.
I am a retired Medical assistant. I worked in the field for 25 years. The
first thing I did when going on an interview was to sit in the waiting room and see how the patients were treated.How long they were made to wait without any explanation from the staff. remember, the receptionist is the first person you deal with and the last one you seeing upon leaving.
My next pet peeve is when the doctor takes phone calls (except for emergencies) while you are stting there draped in a paper drape and feeling
like you aren't there.
I could go on and on.....I suggest a recommendation from someone you trust.
