Finding Contact information for Doctors

 

After our last post on shadowing, we received many emails asking us how to find contact information for doctors. We decided to write a post dedicated to the best methods that we have for not only getting in contact with doctors, but with doctors that you have a high chance of shadowing with.

Your Doctor

This one is a given, you probably have their contact information, just contact them and ask them to shadow them. But in all seriousness chances are your doctor will be more than happy to pass on an email address and phone number of a colleague if you can show them that you are really interested in shadowing them. We would suggest for the sake of politeness that you first ask to shadow your own doctor, before asking for introductions to other doctors.

Hospital Websites

It is really easy to go on a hospital website, find the directory and get a name. There usually is a number to the main switchboard or to their secretary. If the number is for the secretary call their secretary. If there is an email address, go for it shoot them an email. Otherwise find out which department they are in and look on that page, usually there is a faculty page, find the doctor on the page and look for information next to that.

Hospital Operators

If you have a name, call them and ask if you can get Dr. So-and-so’s phone number, under no circumstance should you page a doctor, unless they have allowed you too. If they refuse to give you the phone number ask for the secretary’s phone number, if that idea gets shut down, ask to be transferred to the department. If you are transferred to the department, ask for the doctor’s secretary or voicemail, sometimes they might just transfer you to the doctor if he is free.

Other Doctors You Have Shadowed

This makes life really easy, get an introduction, if not get an email address or phone number. You can than just email or call the doctor directly we will be releasing a post on what you need to say and how to say it in the next few days.

Google

This is easy, just google the doctor, but be sure not to contact them on their personal line as that is usually not appreciated, unless a doctor specifically permits you, do not page them, call them at home or on their cell phone. Just call them on their work phone. Since we are so tech savvy here at PMH we have the strange tendency to email doctors, and find that works best for us.

This was a fairly short post, in the next few days we will be releasing a post with sample scripts on when to call doctors, and what to say and ask. It will help to increase your chances of finding a doctor to shadow. Good luck from all of us here at PMH.
