Moving Tip: Finding and Building a Relationship with a Medical Provider

Once you have moved, it is important to find and begin to build a relationship with your medical provider.  In order to do this, you should do your research.  You can begin by using MovinGal the website to help you navigate and find several doctors and dentists in your area.  Once you have a list, I suggest you call and schedule a time to visit and have a chat with the medical provider.  Ask him or her questions.  Be sure to include protocols for service and insurance.  If the provider does not agree to having a brief consult and tour of their offices, than think twice.

Many moves later, this extra effort has helped me find the ‘right’ fit for us especially when I do not have the luxury of personal referrals.  Good luck.  Once you have met several providers, you can sit down and evaluate which one will work best for you and your family.
