Good luck!: There is no question that our healthcare system is a mess. Finding a good doctor can be a challenge. Different people like different types of doctors. People you know who have similar personalities to yours might be able to recommend a good doctor in your area. Best of luck in finding a doctor who provides the care you need.

You may have to talk to a couple of doctors to find one you like. At an initial appointment (interview), ask question
