How to know when to get a new doctor

As medical malpractice attorneys, we hear a number of stories about doctors who make mistakes. Some of them are quite tragic, as they are errors that should never be made. Others are fairly common, as they are a reflection of disorganization or poor judgment.

Nevertheless, good physicians; or rather, good medical teams are not easy to come by. As such, it may be difficult to really know when you should move on and find new medical providers. With that, we dedicate this post to highlighting clues that should tell you when it is time to move on. 

Your doctor doesn't seem to care - Indeed, a doctor's bedside manner is only one component of what makes him or her a great physician, but your doctor has to care about your ailments. If your doctor appears less than concerned about your issues, or dismisses your claims, it may be time to find a new doctor.

The office staff has issues - It is understandable that assistants and receptionists may make mistakes. But if they are rude and chronically inconsiderate of your time and privacy, this is a problem that should not be taken lightly. Because of this, office staff issues should be a warning sign to you.

Coordination problems persist - Your doctor is responsible for coordinating information between specialists he or she may refer you to. With that, you should be informed about who you will be working with and information should be readily shared between physicians. If you doctor drops the ball when it comes to keeping everyone in the loop, this is not a good sign.
