Tips for Finding a Doctor in Columbus

When it comes to finding a physician in the Columbus area and surrounding region, be it a primary care doctor or a specialist, there are multiple options for patients seeking help.

Find a Doctor Search Tool

If you're not sure where to start, the Find a Doctor search feature on the Columbus Regional Health web site is a great place to begin. There, patients can explore profiles of nearly 200 local physicians and narrow their search criteria according to male or female, specialty and whether the physician is accepting new patients.

Connection Specialists at WellConnect

Patients can also take advantage of free professional advice from hospital staff trained to help match patients with area physicians based on the type of care that is needed. Connection Specialists at WellConnect are available Monday through Friday from 7am to 7pm and can be contacted by phone at 812-343-9840. WellConnect also welcomes patients to visit in-person at the downtown Columbus facility located at 237 Washington Street.

Live Chat and Email

If a patient prefers to chat online with a professional, they can visit the Columbus Regional Health web site and click on the "Live Chat" tab on the right-hand side of the screen. During non-chat hours, the tab changes to "Get Help" and allows patients to submit a question via a form. Note: Please be sure that your web browser does not disable pop-up windows
