Find the Right Care for Heart Valve Disease

How to find the right doctor using our provider search: Here are five tips for finding the right doctor for you.

  1. Review qualifications. It’s valuable to see what past patients say about their doctors, but experience and education speak for themselves. Read reviews, and use our compare feature to easily view qualifications.
  2. Get a sense of the office support. Does the doctor’s office also have support staff to help with your care? Will a nurse quickly respond to your medical questions via phone? Find out the policies.
  3. Check insurance and availability. Check to make sure the doctor is in your insurance network. Use the available insurance filter in the physician search to identify the doctors who accept your health plan. Contact the office to find out how easy or difficult it is to get an appointment.  
  4. Consider telehealth. If the provider has identified telehealth as an option, contact the office to find out if a video chat is appropriate for your needs.
  5. Prepare for your appointment.  Download the appointment guide found under the locations section of your provider’s profile to know what questions to ask.
