DOCTOR INFORMATION Doctors

Finding a doctor who is caring and experienced can be a daunting process.

I've compiled some useful links below to assist you in your search for a qualified doctor.

Check On Your Doctor

There are many ways to check up on physicians in the United States. You can go to your local library, check with a physician referral service or surf the Internet. Below are additional options.

  • Your Health Insurance Plan
    Call your health insurer first to find out which health care providers are in your plan. Most Americans now have a limited number of providers they can see. If there aren't any suitable doctors in your plan, find out the plan's policy if you go "out of network."

  • American Medical Association (AMA)
    Through the AMA you can find out about a doctor's educational background and areas of medical specialty and whether or not the doctor is a member of the AMA. You can also check the American Medical Association Medical Directory at your local public library or bookstore.
    • Department of Physician Data Services

  • American Board of Medical Specialties
    This organization will tell you whether a doctor is board certified or board eligible in a particular area. "Board certified" means the doctor has completed two additional years of training and passed a national examination. "Board eligible" means that the training, but not the test, has been completed.
