How to find (or select) the best Family Physician?

Hi. How to find (or select) the best Family Physician? What is your criteria or way to find a good family doctor who gives time to his/her patients and not always in rush like my current family doctor?

My doctor is always in rush, does not want to listen to my problems and as if he wants me to leave as soon as possible.

Thank you.

Most family drs r not accepting new patients, so u can't pick and choose.

Wow, you are really lucky, because I can't think of any place in Canada where there are enough family doctors accepting new patients that you can pick and choose.

Online ratings are very helpful. I like to look them up on the College of Physicians to see where and when he/she graduated. I also like to use google to see if there is any negative information floating around. I'll also ask my friends and coworkers if they know this person and go from there.

You don't choose them, they choose you. My cumpare has a private physician who is available 24/7 many wealthy people in GTA use him.
