Call the doctor's office to determine if laboratory tests or diagnostic tests are performed there. Many internists and family practice physicians have blood drawn at the office and the samples are sent out for readings.

- How can I find out if lab tests are performed at a doctor’s office?
How can I find out if a doctor has been sued for malpractice?
Information on a doctor’s malpractice history is available in a certain number of states, such as New York, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Connecticut. There is strong public and sometimes political pressure to make that information more available to the public.
Should I make an appointment to meet a new doctor?
You 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.
