Where can I find out if a doctor is accepting new patients?

When searching for a new doctor or clinic, it can become overwhelming and tiresome. The easiest way for you to find out if a doctor is accepting new patients at their clinic, is by either searching clinics in the area and viewing their website. The website can offer information on if they are accepting new patients for certain doctors or the entire clinic. As well, you can call the clinic to find out if they are accepting new patients or if only certain doctors are accepting new patients at the clinic.

Many doctors will offer this information on their website to make it easier for patients to then continue by booking appointments or calling in to schedule a new patient appointment.

Can doctors accept a family as new patients?

Absolutely! Many doctors, if they already have 1 family member on as a patient, will accept the rest of the immediate family members as patients as well. If you are unsure of this, you can call your doctors clinic and make sure.

When you are looking for a new doctor, you will have to fill out application forms that will include any and all medical information on the form. This will offer the doctor a perspective into the patients who are looking for a new family doctor, as well as if the doctor can take on all of the patients, or if one or more of the patients would be better off seeing a specialized medical healthcare professional instead.

Doctors may turn away patients based on their scope of practice. This means they may refuse to take on certain patients if they do not fit what the practice main focus is. A great example is an internist. While an internist deals with all medical problems like a primary care physician would, their practice main focus is on adults or seniors over a certain age. If a family member were to try and have all of their immediate family accepted by this doctor, but a few of them were under the age requirements (like under the age of 18), the doctor may turn them away, based on their primary area of focus for the practice and recommend another doctor that would be a better fit for those individuals.

How often do doctors accept new patients?

This depends on their current patient load, and if patients move away from the clinic and find another physician or if the patient passes away. Many doctors have a certain number of patients they accept into their clinics that they know they can help and be there for without having to rush or not ever see them.

Many doctors will accept new patients throughout the year, while some clinics continuously keep accepting new patients until all of their doctors are full, which then they will put a notice that they do not have any doctors accepting patients at this time.

Most clinics will post this information willingly on their website or on a phone voicemail to let patients know that they are looking for a new doctor that they are or are not accepting new patients at this time.
