When it comes to your health and well-being, you should never settle. It is important to understand that you can (and should) choose a physician that is willing to work with you. Your doctor wants to help you and ensure that you are comfortable during your appointment. If at anytime you feel as though you are not being helped, treated correctly, or your questions are unanswered, seek a second or third opinion.
During your first appointment, come prepared with questions. You should learn as much about your doctor as possible. However, your doctor is not all you should be evaluating. When visiting the doctor’s office for the first time, your comfort level is worth noting. Be open-minded, but remember that the ultimate goal is for you to be satisfied with your physician.
