Find Docs

I’m not feeling very well, I need a doctor immediately. Ring the nearest golf course – Groucho Marx

As far as doctors go, a study completed in 2005 confirms what you probably already instinctively knew: Having a strong and effective relationship with your doctor makes you much more likely to be healthy, frequent the ER less, take fewer medications and spend less money on healthcare.

Furthermore, there is no need to rely on specialists for day to day issues. Primary care doctors, specifically family doctors or general internists, are all you need.

Carefully choosing your doctor is merely the start. Learn the strategies on how to find and keep one. And don't forget to be a responsible partner in your health care. No guarantees, but your life will probably be healthier!
