Local heath care providers that accept Aetna insurance can be found through Aetna's directory of health care professionals. Individuals can search for health care providers by location, specialty or name.
Once a list of potential providers is acquired through the Aetna website, there are options for discerning which doctor is the best choice for an individual. Websites such as Healthgrades provide patient reviews and overall reports of satisfaction with specific physicians. Since satisfaction with a doctor is often a matter of personality and personal opinion, a patient can also request to meet and speak with a doctor prior to selecting them as their physician.
