U.S. News Doctor Finder FAQs

Doximity profiles automatically sync with U.S. News Doctor Finder profiles.

1. What is the purpose of Doctor Finder?

Doctor Finder exists to help consumers find and research doctors who are licensed to practice in the United States. Users can search for doctors by specialty, location, gender, name, or a combination of these attributes, and they can find specific information about each doctor’s education, training, publications, clinical interests, and more.

2. I can’t find a doctor whom I know is in practice. Why?

We haven’t yet published a profile for every doctor. We’ll be publishing more profiles in the coming weeks and months until we have profiles for nearly all actively licensed doctors in the country. You do not need to contact us about a doctor you do not see in the directory.

3. I am a doctor and I am not in the directory at the moment. How do I get listed?

To get listed you must be verified, have a valid state license, and be an MD or DO. Furthermore, you must have your public Doximity profile enabled (this is enabled by default). If you have or are the following please Submit a request

4. Where did U.S. News get information about each doctor?

We announced in June 2016 that U.S. News is collaborating with Doximity, a leading professional network for doctors, which powers the U.S. News doctor profiles. By maintaining an up-to-date profile on doximity.com, which involves no fee, any doctor can ensure that visitors to usnews.com know which hospitals he or she admits patients to, for example, and which insurance plans he or she accepts.

Doximity's free networking service also lets licensed physicians interact with their referral networks, exchange and sign HIPAA-compliant communications via smartphone and collaborate on cases.
