How Can I Find a Good Doctor?

Thursday, 16 Jan 2014 10:30 AM

Question: How can I find a good doctor I can trust? Is there a list somewhere that will tell me the best ones?

Dr. Hibberd's answer:

Word-of-mouth recommendations are your best guide. Ask your friends and relatives. Consult a medical professional you know. Ask your pharmacist and review medical licensure board documents for records and credentials.

Often your local hospital will have a list of doctors accepting new patients. Health plan listings are not reliable sources, as they typically list only those who have agreed to discounted reimbursement from the insurance company in return for free advertising and marketing.
