Consider the Services You Need
Primary care services are generally available from all family doctors. If you’re looking for additional services such as women’s health or lab tests, you may need a separate provider unless you can find one that does it all. At our Tri-Area Community Health locations, we offer a range of services, including gynecological care, digital X-rays, routine lab tests, and more.
Ask if They Accept Your Insurance
If you have health insurance, it’s your responsibility to find an in-network primary care provider that accepts it to avoid high out-of-pocket costs. However, if you’re uninsured, look for a doctor that offers assistance programs you could be eligible for. Tri-Area Community Health is proud to provide access to ACA enrollment assistance and low-cost healthcare services and medications.
Find Out Where Procedures Are Performed
Depending on the healthcare services you’re seeking, you may have to visit more than one family doctor for certain procedures because some facilities aren’t properly equipped. When you visit Tri-Area Community Health, you’ll find our board-certified staff is ready to help with a variety of procedures onsite, including minor surgery and digital X-rays.
Determine Whether the Staff Is Friendly
Remember, your healthcare provider should be someone you can trust, so find one with a friendly, respectful team of medical professionals. When you feel more comfortable, you can expect better care and results. At Tri-Area Community Health, we’ve made it our mission to improve the quality of life of our patients and serve our communities with welcoming, patient-centered care.
