In brief: Your PCP

I would talk with your family doctor. They usually know who the best physicians in the area are and they can then make a referral.
I usually don't trust internet rating sites.

Major Pediatric teaching hospitals will have Adolescent Medicine Specialists. But the care needed for a patient with Bipolar disorder is with a Psychiatrist or Child Psychiatrist (if the patient is a child). The diagnosis of Bipolar disorder is difficult in a child and a properly trained psychiatrist is needed. Contact a Children's Hospital near you for references.
