How to Find a Doctor in Kansas City
August 31, 2012
After you call your Kansas City Mover, you’re probably trying to think about all of the things that need to get done before your move date. With so many things on your ‘to-do’ list, don’t forget to start researching doctors. Though lower on the immediate priority list, having a good number to call in an emergency, especially if you have kids, could be a lifesaver. Here’s our quick list of ways to find the best doctor for your family.
KCDocs.com: Kansas City has a directory of doctors online that can help get you started. It’s best to always check with your insurance first to see if they have a recommended list as well, to ensure you’re looking at doctors that are in-network. If you want to just browse options, this directory is a great resource for starting your search: http://www.kcdocs.com/
healthgrades.com: Healthgrades.com is a good place to do a quick check if you’ve received a list of doctors from your healthcare provider. This website provides patient review information and offers grades to each doctor in its database. This will help you weed out the good from the bad.
Google: Once you have a short list of doctors, go to Google.com and search for reviews by typing a search similar to this, “Doctor’s Name + Reviews” and Google will pull up any patient reviews that have been indexed on the Web.
After you’ve taken the above three steps, you might also want to double-check your findings with your social media networks. Even if you aren’t sure if you know anyone in the Kansas City area – you better bet a friend of a friend will know someone. A direct referral or a recommendation from a trusted source will go a long way.
