Most of us, just like you, want access to the best doctors and care providers for our families and ourselves. Generic recommendations from friends and family, when available, may not be the best solution.
The FindaDoc solution started as a simple concept: provide a fair and credible resource that is easy-to-use and that provides honest information about America’s doctors, to help support you in your healthcare choices.
FindaDoc provides free access to over 720,000 doctors in the U.S.
Finding the right doctor, in our opinion, is your gateway to the best hospitals and to the best care.
FindaDoc can help you make this important choice, an informed choice. Only at FindaDoc, will you be able to utilize our proprietary rating system that was developed by doctors and patients to help guide your healthcare decisions.
Rated Doctors, Informed Choices.
We are a team of doctors and programmers who created FindaDoc to make the daunting and sometimes frustrating process of finding the best doctor as simple as possible.
FindaDoc has devised a unique proprietary rating system that helps patients choose from among the 720,000 practicing physicians in the U.S. By rating Doctors on their Training , Expertise, and Patient Opinion, we offer patients a tool that combines word of mouth recommendations with numerical ratings.
The system is unique – because no other website has it. It is transparent – because the scoring system is based on rules that are fair and openly available. It is also interactive – it allows YOU, the patient, to provide information on details about your doctor that are important to other patients – Bedside Manner, Expertise, Office Staffing, etc. – that directly, and in real time affects the doctor’s rating.
FindaDoc hopes the site benefits you in improving your choice of a doctor.

How Our Rating System Works
Top physicians, healthcare professionals, and patients had input in the development of our Proprietary Rating System.
A doctor’s overall score is calculated based on the ratings from three main categories: Training, Expertise, and Patient Opinion. These categories are then broken down into subcategories. For example, Training is broken down to Medical School, Residency, Fellowship, and Advanced Training.
A doctor’s overall numeric score is the sum total of Training, Expertise, and Patient Opinion. Most Board Certified Doctors have a base score of 70 out of 100. A five red cross rating system is used to represent the numeric score for the Categories and Subcategories. Please refer to the Rating Key for an explanation. In addition, Bonus points are awarded to a doctor’s overall score – Awards, Advanced Training or Mark of Distinction.
Our data is gathered from State, Federal, Independent Public and Private Sources. For detailed explanations of the Categories and Subcategories of our Rating System, please visit Rating System Definitions.
Our rating system combines the power of personal recommendations with statistical analysis of a doctor’s training, skill level, and peer review.
