Tips for Finding a Doctor
You found a doctor nearby, now what? Here are helpful tips and next steps.
Tip #1: Contact the physician’s office directly.
Ask if a doctor is currently accepting new patients and inquire about his or her experience level in diagnosing mitochondrial disease. Remember to check about insurance coverage too.
Tip #2: Go online, connect with other families.
Ask about their experiences with a specific doctor. Keep in mind each patient’s diagnosis, treatment and values may be different from yours.
