Things You Can Ask About When Trying to Find a New OB
Flexibility with Appointment Scheduling
Ask about how long you have to book an appointment ahead of time and what their hours of operation are. Are they open on Saturdays ever or no weekends at all?
Whether or Not They Take Your Insurance
Here at Central Ozarks Medical Center, we accept patients with and without insurance and offer a sliding fee scale based on income and family size.
Availability of the Doctor and How Often or When You Can Call With Questions
When you are pregnant, it is likely that you will have many questions along the way, especially if this is your first pregnancy. You may not always think to ask these questions during your appointments so ask if the doctor is available for phone calls and how often that may be.
The Experience Level of the Doctor
There are doctors with a high level of experience and there are doctors with little experience who may just be starting their careers. Then, there are doctors who are somewhere in the middle. This is important to know. This person is supposed to your guide throughout your entire pregnancy, so don't be afraid to ask about it when searching for a new OB.
