Does your doctor fit your needs?

Choosing the right doctor to coordinate your care is important.

Choosing a doctor — your Primary Care Physician (PCP) — who is responsible for helping you coordinate your care is important to your overall health. Your PCP1 is someone who:

  • Identifies and treats common medical conditions.
  • Provides preventive care and counseling on healthy lifestyle choices.
  • Helps coordinate specialty and follow-up care.

When choosing a participating doctor, do you want a doctor who:

  • Is board certified?
  • Has special training to meet your unique needs?
  • Has admitting privileges at the hospital of your choice?

Once you select a participating doctor, call his or her office to find out:

  • Is it easy to get an appointment?
  • Are the office hours convenient for you?
  • Is the office staff friendly and helpful?
  • Does the office return calls on a timely basis?
