Transition to Adult Care
How to Find a Family Doctor
Make sure you have a family doctor. Your health is not only related to your neurological condition. As you get older, you may develop health problems that are unrelated to your neurological condition. If you don’t have a family doctor, or if you are not happy with your family doctor, you need to find another as soon as possible. Your family doctor will help you with other non-neurological health issues. This is the person you will go to with your health concerns, and for preventative things like immunizations.
If your parents or other adult family members have a family doctor, maybe that doctor could become your family doctor as well. Or check with Health Care Connect, a program that connects patients with primary care providers.
