Most people rely on the recommendations of friends and relatives when trying to find a new doctor. That is a good start but it is still important to check on the doctors training, board certification, hospital appointments and disciplinary history.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
How can I determine if a doctor’s staff will be friendly and helpful?
Not only should a doctor’s staff be friendly and helpful, but they should be professional. That entails accuracy, discretion, politeness, efficiency and other characteristics of a professionally run medical office.
What are the advantages of choosing a compassionate doctor?
Dede Bonner, Health Education, answered
An important piece of your ability to trust a doctor is his or her interest in you as a person. This is not to suggest that you want to be ‘bosom buddies’ (sorry for the bad pun), but it shows how curious this doctor is about you as a unique person. A doctor who is open to learning new things is more likely to be more intelligent, competent, and willing to support you on a personal as well as medical basis.
