Evangelical’s New Find A Doctor Line – A New, Personal Approach to Finding A Doctor

Evangelical Community Hospital has a more personal way to get patients in touch with a doctor - no automated messages or menus - just a live person asking you the right questions to help you find a doctor to meet your needs.
 
The Find a Doctor Line at 1-877-989-EVAN(3826) connects you with a specially trained operator who listens to your medical needs and provides physician choices.
 
Physicians are referred based on their specialty and are not necessarily Evangelical employed doctors. Medical professionals are referred to patients based on personalized criteria like location, insurances, medical issues, and more. Once a doctor is chosen, there is no need to hang up and call a new number; the operator can connect you directly.
 
Andrew Gibbons, Associate Vice President of Primary & Specialty Care at Evangelical Community Hospital said, “Through this innovative system, a patient can be introduced to physicians and specialists in the area based on their medical needs, insurance coverage, and in a location that is convenient to home or work. No automated system could take into consideration all of those factors to find the perfect fit or provide the information in a personalized, one-on-one manner.”
 
If online is your chosen way to shop for doctors or services, the chat option available at www.evanhospital.com takes the same personal interaction of speaking to a real person into a chat window where you can talk about your preferences. Just visit the website and click the FIND A DOCTOR – LIVE CHAT button on the homepage and begin the search for the doctor who’s the right fit for you.
 
Evangelical’s Find a Doctor Line at 1-877-989-EVAN(3826) takes the guesswork out of finding a physician who matches you and your family’s needs.
