When you schedule your first appointment with a doctor you should take the view you are interviewing the doctor to see if he or she is one you would like to care for you. Have a list of questions ready and do not be hesitant to raise issues of concern to you. Of course, the doctor will be discussing your health history and getting to know you at the same time.

- Should I make an appointment to meet a new doctor?
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.”
