  • Mom-with-child
    Find the right fit for you
    Studies show that forging a long-term partnership with a care provider can lead to better outcomes. Insurance coverage and location are key aspects of compatibility, but just as important is understanding if a physician’s care approach is a good fit for you.

    Physicians can share more their care philosophy in their Healthgrades profiles, and patient reviews enable you to learn from the experiences of others.

    Physician Experience
    Find a provider with relevant experience
    Studies show one of the most important factors in determining the success of your outcome is frequency of treatment, or how often a doctor treats your specific condition or performs the exact procedure you need.

    Physician profiles on Healthgrades make it easy compare doctors based on this experience.

    Why Experience Matters
  • Hospital
    Hospital Quality
    Consider hospital ratings and awards
    If you know you’re going to have a procedure that requires you to be in a hospital, choosing the right one is as important as choosing the right doctor.

    Why? Because quality can vary from hospital to hospital, and those differences can literally mean the difference between life and death.

    Discover how Healthgrades provides hospital star-ratings and awards based on the hospital’s performance vs. expectations to help inform your choice of where to seek care.
