How Do I Know if My Provider is “Good”?

I often hear people refer to their doctor or dentist, and say “Oh, he/she is GOOD!” There are a lot of people in the world who are practicing in the healthcare field. How do you know if you are seeing a “good” provider? How do you know if you are seeing the best of the best? Is it the provider’s years of experience? Clinical excellence? Getting results with care?

If you’re looking at years of experience, the providers here at Downtown’s Healthcare have over 75 years of combined experience! They bring all of their collective strengths to the table, and collaborate on the treatment plan for every patient. And the benefit of all this experience is truly realized by the patients in the results they achieve. Whether you look at patients’ results, or how knowledgeable your provider is, we have you covered here at Downtown’s Healthcare! We continually survey our patients to find out how their care is going. On a 10 point scale, DHC providers consistently score 9.9 / 10 week in and week out. I firmly believe we have the best providers in the state! Just take a look at our reviews!

When it comes to clinical excellence, again we have most if not all offices trumped. Not only do these providers confer with each other on every patient case, Dr. Cook, Dr. Hall, and Karen Rea NP are continually getting post graduate credentials, learning new cutting-edge techniques, and learning better ways to handle patients who have been injured in a trauma. Just check out the latest credentials that these providers attained:
