AtoZdatabases now includes healthcare professionals in their database listings. For instance, if you are new to the area or need a new dermatologist and you want to see a female doctor, you can limit your search to Rockland County, female doctors, dermatologists. Surprisingly, my dermatologist at Dermatolgy Center of Rockland was not listed. Neither were her two other female colleagues.
But these doctors also didn’t show up on the NYS Doctor Finder database. I’m beginning to wonder…
So I searched the NYS Doctor Finder by her name and she is a board certified Dermatologist. Phew. I guess she never submitted more information so she does not come up on location searches. I do like the NYS Doctor Finder because that website will tell you if there are any malpractice suits against the doctor.
As we all know, these searches aren’t perfect, but they can be a good starting point.
