      Choosing Your New Doctor
      Probably the best way to find a new doctor is to ask around for personal recommendations. Pay particular attention to the recommendations of people who are similar to you in age, health and outlook. You can also get background information on medical doctors, physician assistants, acupuncturists, and podiatrists on the Oregon Board of Medical Examiners website at www.oregon.gov/OMB/.

      Health professionals’ public records on the Oregon Board of Medical Examiners website include age, medical school training, date of graduation, specialty and license number. It also has information about board actions currently in effect that may limit or restrict a health professional’s practice as well as closed malpractice claims. The board notes that “the settlement of a medical malpractice action may occur for a variety of reasons that do not necessarily reflect negatively on the professional competence or conduct of the provider.”

    Picking up and moving to a new community is more than packing and unpacking. It also means finding a new favorite grocery store, a good dry cleaner, the best barista, and new health care providers. An intensely personal decision, choosing your doctor can be one of the most important decisions you’ll make as part of the transition to your new home.
