Entrusting the life of a loved one, or your own life, to the care of a doctor can be fraught with fear, anxiety, and uncertainty. How do you know if you are making the right choice? What if you discover that the doctor is poorly trained, isn’t particularly knowledgeable, or doesn’t fully listen to and appreciate your concerns?
Or perhaps your doctor is fine, but their administrative staff members are indifferent, or don’t follow up with you as promised.
Regrettably, many of us have wished in retrospect that we could have chosen a better doctor or practice.
