In my opinion (only): your BEST BETS are your FRIENDS/RELATIVES/WORK PLACE ! Ask them if they have a physician they trust...find out (in advance) the list of Participating Physicians in your HMO, and finally KEEP GOING! You may not find one the first time! (Don't worry you will hurt some Doc's feelings if you can't get along after the first visit or two!) Hope this helps! Good Luck Dr Z
