How to find a doctor who’s right for you?
When it comes to choosing your doctor, it’s important to find a physician whose training, philosophy of care and medical interests match your health needs. Our robust Doctor Finder gives you all that information — plus videos so you can see and hear for yourself.
You may also want to choose a physician based on the experience of other patients, which is why our Doctor Finder features a doctor rating — a star rating system (based on patient satisfaction surveys) or user-generated recommendations.
A Video Visit is a good option for care that doesn’t require a physical exam in person, such as a new concern, medication question or follow-up care.
Check with your Scripps doctor if you think a Video Visit is right for you. Currently, Video Visits with our primary care physicians and specialists are available by appointment. You can call your physician’s office to schedule a Video Visit or schedule online for some physicians.
We also offer HealthExpress Video Visits for minor illnesses and injuries, with weekend and evening hours — no appointment needed. Learn more about Scripps Video Visits.
A note about HMOs vs. PPOs
If you have a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) plan, you’ll need to choose a primary care physician (PCP) as your first step. Then, if you want to see a specialist — like a dermatologist or neurologist — your PCP can refer you to that specialist as needed.
If you have Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plan, you may have more flexibility when choosing a doctor or hospital. Check with your plan before making an appointment.
