she uses the one which is closest. somebody else has already decided whether they're suitable to be a doctor or not. in fact, she can't use one which is further away unless she decides to pay for private treatment (a minority do, of course), because the doctor's surgery caters to a specific geographical area.

by meeting him first and getting to know him before committing anything…

it doesn't matter, because picking the wrong chainsaw has minimal implications, which is how choosing a host for a FOAF document *should* be.
