There are a number of ways to find out where and if a physician has an appointment to a hospital medical staff or, in other words, has admitting privileges at a hospital. Ask the hospital; ask the doctor; check various websites that offer information on doctors. Some doctors, particularly in smaller communities, may have medical staff privileges at more than one hospital.

- How can I find out what hospital a doctor uses?
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 can I determine if a doctor will be focused on wellness and prevention?
Doctors are increasingly concerned about promoting information on wellness and prevention. However, many doctors are not well-trained in these fields and many doctors may not have the time or interest to provide this information. You, as a patient, however, have every right to expect and demand it.
