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 a doctor is part of a group medical practice?
How can I find out a doctor’s office hours?
The best way to obtain a doctor’s office hours is to call the office or visit the practice website.
How can I determine if other doctors will be on call with my doctor?
Doctors in solo practice cannot be on call 24/7/365 so, typically, they will have an arrangement with other doctors to “cover” for their patients when they are not available. Most doctors practice in large or small groups these days so, of course, they cover for each other.
