Finding a New Doctor Question

Recommended Posts

In all the times I"ve moved, I've never felt like I knew how to do this.


When you move, and look for a new doctor ... once you've identified a possibility, do you make an appointment to just go in and introduce yourself and talk to the doctor? Do doctors do that? Do they like it? Or do you just see if they're accepting new patients, and go in for the first time when someone is sick?

Call and see if they are accepting new patients. If they are, ask for a new patient visit for as soon as possible in order to get yourself established before actually needing them for an illness.


I'd also ask about things like how promptly you'd be seen when sick (same day?). And would you see the doctor or a PA or Rn, if that matters to you.
