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.”

Why do I need a doctor if I am healthy?
Stuart Linder, MD, Plastic/reconstructive Surgery, answeredHaving annual physical exams and laboratories may screen for problems you are not even aware of. For example, a heart murmur may be picked up on physical exam and needs further work up. Blood tests may reveal abnormal levels requiring supplements and follow up. Preventative medicine is always the best medicine.
What kind of training do family doctors have?
Family doctors are physicians who have been trained in the medical specialty of Family Practice. Their training encompasses the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of illness in both children and adults, including obstetrics. Many hospitals, however, do not grant obstetrical privileges (delivering babies) to Family Practitioners as they have sufficient Ob-Gyns to deliver that care.
