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.

Should I make an appointment to meet a new doctor?
Stuart Linder, MD, Plastic/reconstructive Surgery, answeredYou should certainly make an appointment to meet any new physician. Bring a friend or spouse with you on the consultation. Also, bring a list of questions and check list with you and seek 2 if not 3 consultations until you feel at ease with your final decision. In my book "The Beverly Hills Shape" I recommend that the patient seek at least 3 consultations before making final decision on a Plastic Suurgeon.
How will I know if a new doctor takes my insurance?
The best way to find out if a doctor takes your insurance is to check with the doctor’s office staff. Remember, most insurers offer a variety of plan options. You have to be certain the doctor participates in your particular plan. Alternatively, use your health plan print or on-line Provider Directory to be certain your doctor is “in network.”
