Do you need to find a physician that specializes in a certain field? Are you new to an area and want to find a doctor within a certain distance from home? Has your doctor ever been cited for disciplinary actions or do you wish to file a complaint? These are all questions that can be answered using the links on our “Professional License Records Resources” website.
Most states provide a search of physician licenses; although the type of information and the amount provided varies by state. Some of the states providing physician searches are: “California Medical Board“; “Iowa Board of Medicine“; “Kansas Board of Healing Arts“; “Maryland Board of Physicians“; “Virginia Department of Health Professions“, and many others. The following is a example of some of the available information.
The State of Alabama’s “Licensee Search” provides quite an extensive amount of information regarding each physician such as name, license number, license issue date, license expiration date, medical school attendance dates, specialty, location, and disciplinary actions including a link to the actual disciplinary document. Alaska’s “Licensee Search” includes name, address, medical school information, and any accusations filed against the physician. On the Arizona “Medical Board” website you can search physicians by name, number or specialty including the option to file a complaint online.
