How Do I Find a Doctor for My Busy Schedule? 5 Things You Should Know
Outline Your Needs
Ask the Right Questions
- How important is it for you to have unlimited communication with them?
- Are you happy with your current lifestyle choices (diet, exercise levels, sleep, stress levels)?
- Are you suffering from long standing pain or a chronic condition that you’ll need to continuously manage?
- Do you feel uncomfortable advocating for yourself in a medical setting, and/or would you like your primary care physician to be one of your medical advocates?
The point of these questions is to help you identify where previous primary care experiences have fallen short for you so that you can find an alternative that fits your needs, regardless of your schedule. It’s one thing to wait a day or two to confirm an appointment with a physician whose approach is great for you; it’s another to wait the same amount of time for a doctor whose approach is incompatible with your goals. Saving time isn’t always about cutting down time; it’s about minimizing the amount of time you waste on appointments that aren’t right for your needs.
