Do You Need To Choose A New Doctor?

Maybe you are moving to a different region, or perhaps there is another reason for changing physicians – some changes in health insurance plans can leave you needing to find a new doctor, for instance. Or maybe you just don’t feel that you have an ideal relationship with your current doctor and would like to find a new one.

Whatever your reason for changing physicians, there are many factors to take into consideration, so don’t make the decision without due thought. I recently wrote an article for, providing some pointers on things to consider if you’re looking to make the change.


(Edit 2015): The article no longer exists on the site, but if you’re looking for some pointers, try the site:




  1. I have been considering it. My current practice has a new group of doctors that aren’t as caring as the old group. I’m going to give them some time, but it may be a switch is imminent for me. Thanks for the tips.

  2. I had a fabulous doc here for my first 3 years or so. She was Canadian, & decided to head back to Canada with the family 🙁 Then I managed to get another one that I really liked at the same office. Had her for about a year, until my employers dropped my insurance company at the time. So I had to switch health insurance companies, and my 2nd doc didn’t accept my new insurers…….So now I have #3!
