Full Answer

RateMDs.com has listings for over 2 million ratings and reviews on over 1 million doctors. The site is searchable by doctor's name or by specialty and location. In addition to specific doctors, facilities are also listed, rated and reviewed. Healthgrades.com allows searching for doctors, dentists and hospitals. For doctors and dentists, the site is searchable by name, specialty, condition or procedure in a given location. Hospitals are also searchable by name in a given location.

Vitals.com, like the other sites, allows searching by name, specialty, condition or topic in a given location, but it also allows users to set the type of insurance. Like RateMDs.com, Vitals.com claims to have listings for over 1 million doctors. In addition to searching, the sites also allow users to add ratings of their own, both for the doctors and their staff. Doctors' details are thoroughly listed, with information on their hospital affiliations, office locations and languages spoken, according to WebMD. WebMD also notes all of the information on these three search sites can be useful in helping a patient find a doctor but should not be relied on entirely.
