How to find the right doctor for you
Choosing a primary care doctor is one of the most critical decisions you’ll make when it comes to managing your health. A great way to make sure you prioritize what’s important to you is to come prepared with a list of questions to ask the doctor. This helps you stay focused during what can be an overwhelming or nerve-wracking appointment.
What to ask when you meet a doctor for the first time
Good questions to ask to make sure this doctor is a fit for you include:
How often should I come in for a check-up?
Which health screenings are recommended for me currently?
Am I up to date on all of my vaccinations?
Can you help me to set some health goals?
Is my weight at a healthy level for my height and age?
What lifestyle changes can I make to improve my health?
What’s next for me in terms of preventive care measures?
This isn’t an exhaustive list but is a good starting point that can help you establish a rapport with your doctor and make sure you two are on the same page.
