I've been looking for a new family practice doctor after moving to a new city. How can I find the best fit for me and my family? What questions should I be asking? Does anyone have suggestions as to early signs that a doctor is good or bad?

Hello Hayden,

This is a situation that many people experience. The process starts with you. What are you looking for in a physician? Make a list.

Check the list of providers that accept your health insurance. My health insurance provider's website has a feature called Find a Physician. You can use a drop box to customize the search to meet your criteria or preferences.

Some physicians have personal websites where you can check the provider's education, area of practice, and any disciplinary actions.
