No: ? Kaiser better than other physician services for "health problem". Defining factor is doctor who takes true interest in your problem. Best way find such doctor through recommendations of others. Smart & caring doctors tend to stand out; just have to ask more people who they recommend. I have found that brightest & most caring doctors think independently; absent institutional policies & recipes.

Varies: Hi. I know some wonderful Kaiser docs and some lazier than poo Kaiser docs. Like in any systemized healthcare program, it's partly the luck of the draw with which doc you get assigned to. In other words, no blanket statement about plusses or minuses of Kaiser or any other system. I hope you get a good doc, but we have no evidence you even have a problem. Good luck!
