Helping Texans Compare & Understand Their Health Care Options

Picking a Doctor and Hospital

Doctors often work at more than one hospital.  If you’re planning a surgery, you can pick either the surgeon or the hospital first.  If you pick the doctor first, find out which hospitals they work with and pick the hospital you like best.  Otherwise, you can pick the hospital first and then pick a surgeon based on the ones who work there.  Remember that just because the doctor or hospital is in your network doesn’t mean the other is.  Read Avoiding Surprise Bills to find tips on making sure all the providers you get care from are in your network.
