Hi,
It's such a crapshoot, isn't it? Unless you have or someone tells you of personal experience with a provider, it's really hard to tell. I use things like how easy is it to talk to reception, etc. If I don't get a call back or can't get a question answered, I figure the place isn't "user-friendly" which is important to me.

Also, you can check her credentials with the state board. Usually you can do this online. You might check that out, just to make sure that she is ethically and legally okay.

Good luck! And keep in mind, I really disliked my new pdoc after the first visit. But I had to call her twice in the month between that and the next visit due to side effect problems. On the second visit, I liked her much better. I think she either takes a bit to warm up, or she was just having a bad day the first time. But don't stick with what you KNOW isn't helpful, either.

Sigh, such a process.
