It can be hard to know who the right person is to help yourself or your aging parent. One important decision we are all faced with is how to choose the right doctor to help us navigate the changes that come with aging.
Here are six things to keep in mind when making the decision:
It’s important to review the physician’s education and training and ensure that his or her board certifications are still current. You can find this information online or by asking the physician or their office’s receptionist directly.
Personality and Empathy:
Before committing to a physician, schedule a brief 15-minute interview to help determine if his or her disposition and medical philosophy are the right fit.
