How to find a primary care doctor?
To find a good primary care physician in the private sector, first of all, you must start by asking yourself what you are looking for. For example, you may be interested in having the primary care physician covered by your health insurance.
And, if possible, the consultation is close to your home. Other things to keep in mind are how attentive and pleasant the consultation staff is, how easy it is to contact him and if the consultation schedule is compatible with yours.
Ask your friends, neighbors, and relatives for recommendations, as well as doctors and nurses that you know and trust. When you have a list of possible candidates, find out how much each one can spare. For example, find out if:
- If it is the open, close and natural or more formal and distant treatment - He prefers to treat the conditions directly and aggressively or to adopt a more conservative "wait to see what happens" approach. - Try to solve the problems in your consultation or refer most of your patients to specialists.
Find out about any other complementary service. In some centers, there are also specialists, mental health professionals like GP Botany, dietitians, breastfeeding counselors, and social workers. It may be convenient to have all these services in a single center.
And remember, although it is easier to choose a primary care doctor and always stay with him, if you think your child is not receiving the level of care you want, you can always change to another medical professional like South Auckland doctor.
