It’s easy to focus on the basics when evaluating your doctor. Did they go to medical school? Are they in your insurance plan’s network? Do they have a good reputation with patients and the medical community? These questions are an important part of choosing and building a relationship with your physician, but we also believe knowing more about your physician leads to better communication around your healthcare! At Columbia Surgical Associates, we want you to have a familiar face behind the stethoscope, it can make all the difference to your quality of care!
