Desperately seeking PCP

Hi all.

Any ideas how to go about finding a new PCP? I've never tried to find my own but rather have taken the one offered at the time of insurance switch. So: new territory.

I'm on GHC and am happy to entertain specific recommendations or general "how to's" for finding a curious, questioning doctor.

A good start is to go to your insurance's site, they generally have physician finders.

As for recommendations of who to go with, that's harder.

Keep in mind that you are employing them. Be up-front right away with any unusual issues you have and see how they react.

I like Dr. Leah Ederer (Family Dr. @ GHC Capitol Clinic) but haven't actually seen her in a while due to her having a baby, being on vacation, or just plain booked-up, so I've seen Dr. Michele Thomas there a few times. I like her a lot too.

Not so keen on Dr. Brougunier, though I only saw her once when the above two were booked -- she seemed more rushed, and like she hadn't read our file.
