How can I get referrals for a new doctor?
Stuart Linder, MD, Plastic/reconstructive Surgery, answeredWhen considering a new doctor, get referrals from close family and friends. Check out the doctor's board certification status. Browse their website for credentials and check out their hospital affiliations. Meet with the physician and make sure you are comfortable with their bedside manner and methods of practice.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
