How do I know if I should see a Colorectal Surgeon near me?

Typically, your primary care physician will refer you to a Colorectal Surgeon if they believe it to be necessary. You can also explore your symptoms or research your diagnosis to see what kinds of doctors commonly treat your health condition.

How do I find the best Colorectal Surgeon near me?

It’s important to find a Colorectal Surgeon who has extensive experience treating your specific health condition. But it can be challenging to find the best Colorectal Surgeon for you. User review sites like Yelp are often of minimal help, especially since there can be a number of problems with relying on reviews of Colorectal Surgeons from other patients. Here at MediFind, we evaluate physicians, according to their expertise so you can quickly find a Colorectal Surgeon near you that best fits you.

Each Colorectal Surgeon is assessed based on research, patient volume, standing among peers, and connectedness to other physicians related to a specific health condition.

Should I get a second opinion from another Colorectal Surgeon near me for my health condition?

When you’re making important health decisions, it’s always recommended to get medical opinions from more than one doctor, and sometimes even more than one Colorectal Surgeon. If you just received a diagnosis, but something in your gut tells you to seek more guidance, it’s OK to consult with another doctor or Colorectal Surgeon to get additional insight into your condition and care. Second opinions are highly valuable because they can either confirm or disprove your original diagnosis or provide different perspectives from different Colorectal Surgeons. If you are unsure about getting a second opinion from another Colorectal Surgeon because you don’t want to offend your doctor, don’t let your concerns stop you. The fact is that most doctors, including Colorectal Surgeons, will not get offended and welcome second opinions, especially if you were diagnosed with a serious or rare condition. You can even use MediFind to search for another Colorectal Surgeon near you who can provide a second opinion.

How can I learn about the latest research and medical advances my Colorectal Surgeon may know about?

Colorectal Surgeons know there is new scientific research happening all the time, and in fact, it’s estimated that the total body of medical knowledge now doubles every 73 days. That’s a lot of information to keep up with, even for an excellent Colorectal Surgeon. MediFind can help you explore the latest medical advances, research, and breakthroughs for your health condition, giving you access to the same cutting-edge information as your Colorectal Surgeon.

How can I research clinical trials my Colorectal Surgeon might tell me about?

Depending on your specific health condition, your Colorectal Surgeon may bring up clinical trials during one of your appointments. Clinical trials are a type of medical research conducted by doctors and researchers, including Colorectal Surgeons, focused on evaluating the effects of new tests and treatments on human health. The purpose of clinical trials is to find improvements or discoveries for diseases and treatments, and your Colorectal Surgeon is likely working to stay on top of these developments. MediFind can help you easily search and filter clinical trials for your health condition that your Colorectal Surgeon may bring up in conversation. You can also learn more about what to consider when exploring clinical trials that you may wish to discuss with your Colorectal Surgeon.

What should I bring with me to an appointment with my Colorectal Surgeon near me?

Bring your list of concerns (or reasons for your visit) with you on a piece of paper or your phone, so you can easily recall them when speaking to your Colorectal Surgeon. You may want to consider bringing a friend or loved one for support, and to help you recall the information after your Colorectal Surgeon visit. Bring a notebook so you can take notes, copies of your medical records (dating back at least one year), a list of current medications, supplements and allergies to medications, your family history of disease, and a list of symptoms (and details about how long they last and how often they occur) to discuss with your Colorectal Surgeon.

When talking with your Colorectal Surgeon, be honest and don’t hold anything back, since your doctor can only help you with the information you give them. Understanding the full picture will give your Colorectal Surgeon more to work with and help them provide you with the best care.

How can I get the most out of my Colorectal Surgeon appointment near me?

Being a “good patient” isn’t just about listening to your Colorectal Surgeon. It’s about engaging in your health together to ensure you receive a high quality of care, which is called practicing patient autonomy. It’s important to be honest with your Colorectal Surgeon, and hide nothing, even if it’s embarrassing. You should also speak up and voice your concerns, and listen and ask questions of your Colorectal Surgeon. You may also consider doing your own research on your condition and talking to other patients before or after speaking with your Colorectal Surgeon.

What questions should I ask my Colorectal Surgeon?

A few topics you may wish to ask your Colorectal Surgeon about include: diagnosis details, symptom management, medical care, second opinions from other Colorectal Surgeons, whether you should see a specialist near you other than a Colorectal Surgeon, treatment plans, side effects, and expectations for follow-up appointments with your Colorectal Surgeon.

What are the most common health conditions that a Colorectal Surgeon near me might treat?

Can a Colorectal Surgeon near me help me check symptoms?

Depending on your symptoms, a Colorectal Surgeon near you may be able to provide a different point of view on your health than a primary care physician. You can also explore your symptoms and bring the results with you to your Colorectal Surgeon visit for discussion.

What types of insurance are accepted by Colorectal Surgeons near me?

You should always contact your Colorectal Surgeon’s office to make sure they take your health insurance. Every Colorectal Surgeon has different arrangements with insurance providers. The most commonly accepted insurance may not be the same everywhere, but some of the largest insurance providers are: Anthem/Blue Cross Blue Shield, Centene, UnitedHealthcare, Humana, HCSC (Health Care Service Corporation), CVS Health/Aetna, Kaiser Permanente, Molina Healthcare, and Cigna.
