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.
How can I determine if other doctors will be on call with my doctor?
Cathleen London, MD, Family Medicine, answeredAsk your doctor if they are part of a call group. Ask what happens when your doctor is unavailable (traveling etc).
