Should I change my mother's doctor just because he works with only one hospital?

Follow

Mother has an HMO that is networked with a hospital she dislikes. She had surgery at that hospital and dislikes their services. However, she likes her doctor. This is a small clinic and only deals with one hospital.

Any ideas? Not sure how to handle this one. I don't want to remove her from her doctor and then regret it.

Please, help.

Thank you so much.

That is unfortunate. So sorry to hear about your mom's experience. I am keeping mom's doctors for now. I will not make any changes until I know I have found a better doctor. Changing can be risky.

Personally, I changed my doctors after 20 years. It was the best decision I made.

I agree, try to get some of the problems she is having with the hospital resolved. Not a good idea to switch doctors if she likes the doctor she has now and he knows all of her medical history, etc. I am having a lot of trouble with mom when we had to move to North Dakota and she does not like her new doctor and I do not think he is very good either, does not do the tests and follow-up that he is supposed to.
