What questions should I ask when selecting a doctor or surgeon?

While you can never find out every small detail about your doctor or surgeon, there are a few things you can do to make a better informed decision. First and foremost, ask questions. For example...

Where did you go to medical school?
What American Board of Medical Specialty Certifications do you have?
How long have you been practicing?
Are there any disciplinary actions outstanding against you?

All of these are perfectly legitimate questions to ask. Do not hesitate. If you'd like to learn more about surgical safety, medical negligence and ways not to become a victim, download our free report.
