When you’re in need of gastrointestinal care, finding the right doctor can be difficult. In this article, we are going to offer several tips for finding the right GI doctor for your unique situation.
Ask for a Referral
If you’re looking for a gastroenterologist, a great place to begin is to ask for a referral. Your primary care physician should be able to refer you to a GI doctor they trust. Your inner circle of family members and friends may also be a good resource to find a trusted physician or clinic.
Do Your Research
Once you have the name of a doctor or clinic, it’s a good idea to do some research on them. Find their website and read about their credentials, philosophy, and experience. This will give you a better idea of whether or not it’s a good fit.
Check for Reviews
It’s also important to do your due diligence and see what patients say about the doctor or clinic you intend to visit. Thankfully, in this day and age it has never been easier to find patient reviews. Just do a Google search for your doctor or clinic and read the reviews that pop up in their Google listing, Healthgrades listing, Ratemds listing, and the like.
