A directory of doctors in an individual's area is available at Apps.AMA-Assn.org and Doctor.WebMD.com, according the American Medical Association and WebMD. The American Medical Association directory includes more than 814,000 doctors licensed in the United States. Individuals can search the WebMD website using by physician name, speciality, state and city.
The American Medical Association physician directory allows searches by physician name and location, or specialty and location. A search requires either the state or ZIP code, notes the American Medical Association. Searches by specialty are based on physicians' self-designations of their primary practice areas of specialization. WebMD also offers searches by procedure, such as knee replacement, and by condition, such as bronchial asthma, throughout the United States, according to its website.
