Physician directory

An online directory of doctors, such as this one, can save you hours of effort in tracking down medical doctors.

Finding a list of doctors is just the first stop, however. You need to decide for yourself what kind of relationship you want with your doctor. People may have different styles of relating to their physicians and those styles may vary at different times or for different illnesses. Some prefer that doctors be authoritative because it makes them feel secure. Others want a sense of partnership between equals where, together, they take the time to weigh the pros and cons of decisions.

You may want to give a prospective doctor a six month trial period before committing to him
