Doctor’s Guide to Doctors

I just want to give a shout out to Danielle Ofri MD for her NY TImes article called A Doctor’s Guide to a Good Appointment. In it she says that “as a doctor I often get asked by friends and family how to make the most of a medical visit. Here’s my advice, and it’s basically the same whether you are the patient, or a family member or a caregiver of the patient” and then recommends…..Direct Primary Care!

Ask friends who’ve had a lot of experience dealing with the medical system — here’s what I recommend looking for:

  • A doctor who takes his or her time talking with you, as opposed to making you feel like you’re at a drive-through fast-food joint.

  • A doctor who engages his or her patients in decision-making, as opposed to simply rattling off a to-do list.

  • A doctor who you can get in touch with on the phone or through secure email.

Yup, that’s us.

Thank you.
