How to find a doctor you like
This is a little embarrassing to admit, but I don't have a doctor. I've spent so many years moving and traveling that I just haven't found one. If I ever needed medical care, which has been extremely rare (knock wood), I've gone to a clinic. I fell off a boat once and hit my head--right eye first-- on an outboard motor and luckily a boat that was nearby had a doctor onboard who took a quick look and said nothing appeared to be broken but to check with an ER which I did and luckily I have a very hard head and I just had a super duper shiner.
I also, kind of by accident, had my thyroid testing done by going to Planned Parenthood. I had a prescription for Synthroid which I haven't taken in years. Admittedly, this is very stupid on my part and I'd like to see what that old gland is up to these days. I have a feeling it's been very, very lazy.
I now have insurance which is really sucky, basically a catastrophe policy, but it's something and I've been looking through to see about the doctors who accept my insurance and I have no idea how to go about picking one. There are just so many and I've always been one who is paralyzed by too many choices.
Any advice? And it's totally cool to tell me how dumb I've been by taking my good health for granted especially now that I'm past *eek* 40.
