Ask Around

To get started, you can always ask your friends and family who their gynecologists are. Nothing speaks to a doctor's service quite like a recommendation from a friend or family members. You'll also get an honest review of someone who you trust. Just make sure to ask about things such as bedside manner and the doctor's skills and experience.

Make Sure They Take Your Insurance

With our healthcare system, it's vital that you know how much you will be paying for a visit to your gynecologist. So make sure to check that a gynecologist is included in your network before settling down on them.

Check Reviews

After you get a few great names from the people closest to you and you know that your insurance can take them on, be sure to check them out online to see what other people are saying. If the doctor has a few random negative reviews, we wouldn't be too worried. However, a lot of negative reviews might be enough to steer you away from that particular doctor.

Make Sure You Are Comfortable

After the logistics, you need to make sure that you trust and you feel comfortable with your gynecologist, whether that being open about your body or topics like birth control or pregnancy. As you will likely be discussing your reproductive health, it would be wise to make sure that your values align with theirs and that you feel comfortable opening up with them in order for the best care possible.
