I am brand new to the Hampton Roads area of Virginia and have no friends or family in the area. My son is 6 months old and I need to chose a health care provider, hopefully a long-term choice. How do I do this? I just kind of went with the doctor that was assigned by the military at our last duty station--she was pretty mellow, but a little old-school, so I probably would have been looking around for someone new soon anyway.
How did you find someone when you don't know anyone in the area? How do you feel them out?
Did you do "interview" kind of consultations? What did you ask?
What things ended up being most important? Anything you were surprised that made a big difference?
What things did you THINK would be important that did not end up being so?
Anything else I should consider?
I'm sorry if this is stuff that's repeated too much, but I'm not good with the search engine. If this should be posted on a different forum, please let me know as well.
Thank you so much!
