Date:12/10/2008

Finding Dr. Right brings together in one resource the necessary information to make an informed decision when choosing any type of doctor, at any time of year

LYNDHURST, N.J., Dec. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- From picking a great pediatrician to identifying the city's best otolaryngologist (and figuring out what an otolaryngologist is), navigating the medical landscape can be a daunting task, especially if you're not an MD, a DO or are certified by the ABMS. As the leading online doctor evaluation site, Vitals has introduced a new, free eBook, Finding Dr. Right, to provide consumers with the tools they need to successfully find the doctor that is right for them. Packed with information, Finding Dr. Right breaks down complex medical terminology into a user-friendly guide. The eBook can be easily downloaded for free at http://www.vitals.com/ebook.

Finding Dr. Right guides patients through the search process with clear and concise information on what to look for in a doctor and how to gauge whether a doctor is right for them. The eBook covers such topics as:

  • What kind of doctor should I be looking for?
  • What are quality measures?
  • Questions to ask during your office visit
  • Doctor Dictionary (terms you should know!)

"With the average doctor visit now lasting less than eight minutes, it is absolutely necessary to identify beforehand your personal criteria for choosing the right doctor and what questions you want to ask during your visit," said Mitchel Rothschild CEO of Vitals.

Finding Dr. Right is an all-inclusive resource for patients that spans six informative chapters. Topics range from what kinds of doctors are out there, to questions to consider before a visit, to descriptions of quality measures and how you can use them. The eBook also features a Doctor Dictionary that spotlights common specialties and what they mean in lay terms, taking the confusion out of finding a doctor.

"There is a clear need in the marketplace for a comprehensive patient resource to simplify the search for the right doctor, and we hope at Vitals that Finding Dr. Right will improve the patient experience," said Rothschild. "This resource will take the pain out of finding a doctor and targets anyone seeking care, whether they have a new injury or illness to treat, or have simply relocated or changed insurance providers. Read in conjunction with a quick search on the Vitals web site, patients will now be able to quickly and effectively make an informed healthcare decision."
