Looking for a Philly doctor

Out-of-towner in Philly for the foreseeable future needs a GP, for general checkup as well as to look at a possible STD symptom.

I'm from Chicago, but in Philly for at least a few months for work, with no plans to go home any time soon enough to be useful. Recently discovered some bumps at the base of my penis, which obviously needs looking at ASAP. I need a doctor in Philly who's actually taking new patients and who'll examine/treat this without lecturing me. Trying to go through provider's website has given me a lot of "I could see you maybe in six months" results.
I have Blue Cross Blue Shield from Illinois, which I'm given to understand should mean that any local Blue Cross provider is also in-network for me, but I have minimal experience with insurance so not entirely sure how this works.
I'm still very new to the city, so something I can find easily from Center City would be best, though I'm sure I could make my way around Penn easily enough.
