Full Answer

On Healthgrades, search for a physician by specialty, condition, procedure or name, and select a location before clicking the Search icon. In the Other Criteria category, check the Insurance subcategory to view a list of providers, and then select Medicaid. Define other aspects, such as the doctor’s qualifications and patient feedback, to find board-certified physicians. Click on a listed doctor to check his experience, hospital affiliation, education and training, awards or board actions, if applicable. Find driving directions to a physician’s office, or get his contact information to schedule an appointment.

Alternatively, find a physician by specialty or name or ZocDoc, and enter the ZIP code of your preferred location. Select Medicaid, and define your plan at the top of the page. The map feature on the site helps you find a doctor in a neighborhood of interest, while the Book Online tab allows you to schedule an appointment with the physician you select. Define the reason for your visit, to narrow the list of physicians, and find doctors based on availability, gender and languages spoken. To determine a doctor's suitability, view profiles of listed doctors, and check testimonials of verified patients.
