Before relocating to the area, here are some tips to help make the transition from your present medical care facilities and doctor to those in the Metropolitan St. Louis area:

  • Consult with your physician for a recommendation.  Your doctor is familiar with your needs and preferences.  If your doctor cannot recommend someone in this area, consult with a local professional/medical association. 
  • Local medical schools and hospitals may provide information on medical care and physicians.
  • Check the Directory of Medical Specialists in a large local hospital’s medical library.  It lists physicians by their age, training, and geographic location.
