Common Questions

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.
