Ask friends/family: If someone you knows goes to an internist and recommends that doctor, you could start there. The local medical society, and local hospitals also help connect people to doctors. Hospitals usually steer inquires to doctors on their staff. Hospital privileges are awarded to doctors who have to have proper credentials, which gives some assurance of competency.
