How can I find a good general practitioner where I live?

What is a healthcare provider?
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.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
What kind of training do primary care providers have?
Primary care physicians are trained to diagnose and treat the initial stages of disease for adult patients. They also should be trained in prevention and wellness. Pediatricians provide primary care for children. In addition, many women use Obstetrician-Gynecologists for primary care and many Ob-Gyns have given up practicing obstetrics and only practice gynecology and serve as Primary Care physicians for women. Despite this, the College of Obstetrics and Gynecology states the training programs for that specialty are not designed to train Primary Care physicians.
