Maybe you've moved, switched insurance, need a specialist or your current doctor's office puts the word "wait" in waiting room. Whatever the reason, everyone deserves to find Dr. Right. Here are 9 ways to find the doctor of your dreams
Once you’ve found a doctor you think is a good fit, do a background check with the Federation of State Medical Boards. For a fee, you can find out whether the physician was ever disciplined by the medical board for violations such as prescribing medications to patients who don’t need them or sexual misconduct. You’ll also find information about his or her education, licensing, specialties and board certifications. Your state’s medical board website might also have the same information.
