From the AMA homepage, click Patients, and then click DoctorFinder for the DoctorFinder app. On the DoctorFinder search page, search for doctors in your area using the bottom section. Select Family Medicine in the drop-down list, and enter your location for nearby doctors. To see all listed doctors on the results page, click the View Non-Members link. The AMA claims to list almost all U.S. doctors. Non-member profiles generally list less information than member profiles. On these profiles, make an educated guess about doctors' genders based on their names.

WebMD's doctor directory is organised by state and city. Simply click through the location lists for your location, and scan the final list for doctors with female names. Most doctor listings on WebMD list additional information, such as years of experience, insurance networks and procedures performed.

Business directories, such as YellowPages.com and Yelp.com, also provide non-comprehensive doctor listings. Search for "family medicine" or "family doctors." Both websites also allow user reviews, which can be helpful when selecting a family doctor.
