Looking for Medical specialists?

A useful resource when seeking doctors is the Official ABMS Directory of Board Certified Medical Specialists, now available in Warrenton.
Arranged by broad specialty such as Pediatrics, it also provides subspecialties such as medical genetics, neonatal-perinatal medicine, and pediatric cardiology.

Listings are by state, and then by city within each specialty.
Most entries for physicians include type of certification and date, medical school, internship, residency, fellowship, hospital appointments, academic appointments, professional memberships and primary and secondary office locations.

Another source of information is U. S. News and World Report

Health ratings website which lists Best Hospitals, Best Health Plans and Best Medical Schools among other rankings.

The Washingtonian magazine features "Top Doctors" in the region occasionally. The lastest was July 2005.
