Helping You Choose Quality Ambulatory Care

October 18, 2013

HYChoose_graphicWhen you need ambulatory care, you should find out some information to help you choose the best ambulatory care provider for you or your loved one. Your doctor can recommend some ambulatory care providers. Talk with representatives from each one. Ambulatory health care is provided for short periods of time, such as in:

  • doctor’s offices
  • health clinics
  • urgent care centers
  • ambulatory surgery centers

This guide includes questions that can help you get the information you need.

Helping You Choose guides, produced in both English and Spanish, provide questions to ask when selecting a health care provider.
