The most important thing when visiting a new doctor is to be prepared and have ready a list of questions you need to discuss. When looking for a new primary care doctor, you are interviewing them as well as their clinic to make sure they are the best fit for you and your needs. Asking the doctor about themselves, and their practice can determine if they are going to be the best option for you before you become a patient.
Some important questions to ask a primary care doctor at your first initial visit could include:
1. How do you approach the patient-physician relationship at this clinic?
2. How does the clinic handle emergencies?
3. Am I able to call or email you with any non-emergency questions? If so, how long should I expect to wait for a callback?
4. How long should I expect to have to wait for an appointment with you after calling into schedule one?
5. If you are unavailable, am I able to see another physician in the clinic? If so, with who?
6. Do you keep paper or electronic medical records at this clinic?
7. Do you have any online resources available with additional information about the clinic, yourself, and the staff?
It’s best to be open and honest during each and every visit to a doctor, and if you don’t feel things are right, perhaps the communication style doesn’t work for you, or they are overworked or seem distracted, these are all valid reasons, and you should look elsewhere. At the end of the day, your doctor should be looking out for you and making sure you are their number one priority when you are working with them.
This will completely depend on each practitioner and their clinic as well as the patient load they can take on. Usually, primary care doctors will accept a certain number of patients that they know they can accommodate and not feel overwhelmed or overlook any patients due to the influx. If a patient moves away and finds another primary care doctor, or if a patient leaves the clinic for any other reason, an internist can then decide if they want to start accepting new patients at their clinic.
To find out if an internist near you is accepting new patients, it’s best to simply call the clinic and ask the front desk staff directly. There you can book an appointment with the internist if they are accepting new patients, and find out more information about the clinic by talking to the front desk staff or reviewing the clinic’s website.
