Find a Doctor

Why might a person be looking to find a doctor? Perhaps they have just moved into a new area, and have not yet scheduled a doctor visit. Perhaps their previous doctor is no longer practicing. Perhaps they would just like a second opinion. Or they could just be looking to replace the doctor that gave them the first opinion! Whatever your reason for searching for a new physician, it’s important to have a good plan in place regarding how to find a doctor. Your search criteria will have a lot to do with what kind of doctor, and what kind of primary care facility, that you end up with.

For instance, you should start by figuring out what kind of doctor you need. If you have heart problems, you might be wasting your time inquiring about pediatric podiatrists. But once you know what you need, it’s easier to compile a list of primary care physicians that overlap with your needs. Next, you should add your own personal preferences to the criteria: male/female, specialties, patient reviews, etc. Once you’ve narrowed a little more, do a background check on the remaining candidates. Then, make an appointment with the remaining physicians. Once you have your appointment, write out your ailments, your medications, your allergies, your previous doctor’s contact info, or anything else that might help your new prospective primary physician candidate. Then, let your instincts and remainder of your experience with the new physician guide your decision.

Of course, you could bypass all that tediousness and make an appointment with any of the highly-qualified, classically progressive, primary care physicians at Southeastern Primary Care Specialists.

Why Southeastern Primary?

“While at NYU Medical Center in New York, I got a call from a recruiter in Atlanta. From this phone call, I met with two gentlemen, Dr. William Osborne and Dr. John Harsch, who were infected with a desire to take care of people. They never turned anyone away. They were the type of doctors that you usually only get to read about. Taking care of people was what they actually liked to do, not just what they were being paid to do. They wanted to make people’s lives better, not just treat their sicknesses. They had vigor, enthusiasm, and commitment to a new way of practicing medicine. That’s what drew me in to Southeastern Primary Care Specialists, and that’s why I’m still here today, as excited as I was on my first day.” - Dr. Carr
