Need Help Finding A Doctor, Can Anyone Help?

Postby Alphonsus » Mon May 29, 2017 10:58 pm

I just turned 18 and don't know how to do this stuff, and don't have parents to teach me this stuff, but I am about to start college and I need to have a check-up and get a few shots, and things like that. I have insurance and I went to its website and it helps you find a doctor. I am trying to fill in the information needed but I am not quite sure on the "provider type", the choices are: Behavioral Health, Dentist, Doctor and Other Healthcare Professionals, Group Practice/Clinic, Home Health and Other Medical Services, Hospital, Labs/Blood Drawing Facility, Medical Equipment Supplier, Pharmacy, Retail Health/Walk-in Doctor, Urgent Care, Vision. Based on those choices and what I need done which do I choose? Also, do specialty doctors do things like check-up?

All you need is a family doctor/primary care provider or group practice. These doctors do wellness exams, shots etc. They also have labs/xray machines in case you need your blood analyzed. They can refer you to a specialist in case you need other specialists opinion.

Find one you click with and who listens to you. My family doctor is amazing.
