I heard about a doctor taking new patients, so scheduled a meet and greet and luckily I liked her.  Many people don’t have a GP here, as there aren’t enough doctors.

I don’t have an Ob/Gyn.  I’ve seen the one at the university once.  I don’t see the need for one anytime soon, but if I do need one, my GP would probably give me a referral.

For a period I was without insurance so I called EVERY area doctor, only two were accepting new clients that didn’t havei nsurance, I went with the first and LOVE it there.

 

I definitely got lucky.

Referral from a friend.  Luckily, he takes my insurance, too.

I interviewed mine. I researched a lot and then picked three I thought were more “holistic” and also offered OBGYN services. I then did a wellness check with three of them. I used this as my interview. I then picked mine based on her bedside manor. She talked to me the longest and went through my entire medical history (unlike one who glanced at my one page form and left it at that). She would also be my doctor when/if I get pregnant.

You can typically go to the website of your insurance provider and they will have an area where you can serach for doctors in our area that are covered by your insurance.

I looked for places with good online reviews and that were close to me and then I used my insurance providers website to make sure they would accept my insurance.
