4 Things to Help You Narrow Your Search for a New OB-GYN
Searching for a new OB-GYN can be a little overwhelming. There are many options out there, but you want the one who makes you comfortable in intimate situations. One that you can trust and be open and honest with during awkward, yet crucial, conversations.
When you’re sifting through your options on the internet, how do you know if you are picking the right one for you? Here are some things to consider when evaluating your options after Googling “OB-GYN near me.”
As a woman, you are more than busy. Your responsibilities are endless and sometimes your own care is set aside because of work and the needs of your family. Who wants to waste time behind the wheel if you’re in and out of your OB-GYN’s office regularly because of a chronic condition or pregnancy?
Convenience without the sacrifice of quality care is very important. That’s why CMC Women’s Health has multiple offices with experienced OB-GYNs in multiple areas of the county. Traffic and proximity do not have to be a barrier between you and the top rated care you deserve.
2. Which hospital are they associated with?
Doctors usually have privileges with a certain regional or local hospital. If you have a strong preference for a hospital in your area, check to be sure that’s the hospital your prospective OB-GYN uses.
For instance, if you become a patient at a CMC Women’s Health location, your OB-GYN will deliver your baby at Conway Medical Center. Not only has CMC provided medical services to the community longer than any other hospital system in the area, they also birth more babies annually than all of the other hospitals in Horry County combined. Patients of CMC Women’s Health have the confidence and peace of mind provided by the long standing traditions of excellence and service from this preferred facility.
3. Easy access to other specialists and services
It may not seem important to you now, but having an OB-GYN who has a good relationship with other specialists and easy access to other services could prove very important if health issues were to arise.
When researching OB-GYNs, look for one like those with CMC Women’s Health. Their providers are able to collaborate and easily share records with other CMC services to assist their patients with more complex issues. From endocrinology, breast health, digestive health, and cardiology, just to name a few, CMC Women’s Health patients also have access to services like women’s physical therapy, laboratory and radiology services, and top notch primary care close to home.
4. Trust your instincts
The most important thing when picking an OB-GYN is to trust your judgment.
Think about how they make you feel. Sometimes you just click with a physician like you do with a good friend. Ask yourself:
- Do questions and answers come easily, from both you and the OB-GYN?
- Do they make you feel more relaxed?
- Do they take the time to explain things to you?
- Do they listen?
Finding the right OB-GYN doesn’t have to stress you out. CMC Women’s Health has profiles for all of their providers and locations on their website to make your search easier. Not to mention a wealth of other information is available to keep you informed about your health and the medical services available to you.
