The term provider is generally applied to any person who provides healthcare: doctors, nurses, podiatrists, chiropractors, etc. However, many physicians do not appreciate being labeled providers.

What is a healthcare provider?

How can I get a list of doctors in my insurer's network?
Insurers will typically have an online directory of providers, both individuals (doctors, podiatrists, etc.) and organizations (hospitals, rehab centers, imaging centers). Some may also have print directories of providers.
How can I determine if a doctor will be focused on wellness and prevention?
Doctors are increasingly concerned about promoting information on wellness and prevention. However, many doctors are not well-trained in these fields and many doctors may not have the time or interest to provide this information. You, as a patient, however, have every right to expect and demand it.
