See below: Avoid the doctor ratings sites. They are not representative, complete, or validated. The best suggestion is word of mouth from co-workers and friends. Also, check that the doctor is board certified. You can also check your state's medical board online and do a search for a specific doctor to see if there were any disciplinary or malpractice issues.
