Trusted Care: Your Guide to Finding the Best Doctors for Your Family

What to look for in a primary care provider, how to prep for your first visit, how to decipher your insurance plan, and more



Published:

Finding the right doctor is one of the most important health care decisions you can make. Oftentimes, your primary care provider will be your first line of defense when you’re sick, hurt, or need treatment for a medical condition. They’re also your go-to for preventive care like routine screenings, checkups, and flu shots.

Most HMO insurance plans require you to have a primary care physician, so be sure to check what kind of plan you have and what it covers. If you’re a parent, finding the right pediatrician is just as important. They could be by your side from your child’s birth until he or she hits adulthood. Read more about these important health care topics and get tips here. Also, click here to find out why you should choose Scripps for your health care needs.
