Great discussion to get started, @merpreb
Do you also Google the doctor to see their online presence? For example, are they on Twitter? What about YouTube videos? Does seeing them talking in a video help? I'm biased of course, but I like seeing the physicians talk in the Video Q&A sessions we host on Mayo Clinic Connect: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/webinars/

This discussion is also closely related to and a good companion to this one:

@penlee you bring up a good point. Many don't have the option of choice, especially in rural and remote locations. Do you have access to Stanford expertise through their patient portal?

Yes I do. I have used it and they are respond quickly.

Colleen- Thank you- Excellent suggestions! Can we – you and me or someone- compile a comprehensive list, maybe videos, etc about all of this?
