How can I find a good general practitioner where I live?
Stuart Linder, MD, Plastic/reconstructive Surgery, answered
Is a doctor board certified in a specific field of medicine?
It is important to select a doctor who is board certified in the specialty they practice. Board certification does not assure you the doctor is excellent, but it does assure you he/she has had appropriate training by having completed at an approved residency of at least three years and passed an exam.
How can I determine if a doctor is part of a group medical practice?
Today, most doctors practice in groups, either large or small. In fact, as of December 2010, more doctors were employed by hospitals than were in private practice.
