It is the individual’s responsibility to verify the qualifications, education, and experience of any healthcare professional, hospital, or other providers of services and products and to assess the suitability of any services or products. To begin your research, you will need to know the physician or healthcare professional’s full name and location. Beware of doctor review or rating websites. Information on these types of websites may or may not be accurate.
In the case of doctors, information is generally available from state medical boards concerning a doctor’s number of years in practice, where the doctor went to medical school, if there are any open complaints against the doctor or whether the board took disciplinary action against the doctor’s license. Similar information may be available from state licensing authorities concerning other healthcare providers.
Each state licenses doctors. A doctor is not allowed to practice medicine without a license. You can look up licenses at your state's physician licensing board through the Federation of State Medical Boards.
Check to see if your doctor is board certified and in what area(s) of medicine. A doctor might be board certified in one area of medicine, but actually practices in a different area of medicine. The article What is Medical Board Certification? explains what board certification is and why it is important. You can also visit the website www.ucomparehealthcare.com to learn where a doctor attended medical school and completed a residency.
Verywell is a helpful website that provides guides on how to research a healthcare provider.
