Health Tip: Choose the Right Doctor

(HealthDay News) -- When you're looking for a new doctor, find someone you feel comfortable talking with, the U.S. National Institute on Aging suggests.

The agency offers these additional tips:

  • Locate several doctors who meet your criteria.

  • Read online reviews to understand how existing patients rate each doctor.

  • Call each doctor's office and speak with the staff to get a feel for how the office operates.

  • Make a list of relevant questions to ask each doctor if you do get together.

  • After you meet with a doctor, evaluate the interaction and decide whether the physician meets your criteria.
