Full Answer

Under location, enter your zip code, city and state, or the closest landmark, and in the second search box enter the last name of a doctor, speciality, or medical condition you are seeking treatment for. If looking for a primary doctor, type primary care physician in the search box and a list of doctors in the area who meet the requirements pops up.

The list is organized under five main categories: family practice, general practice, geriatric medicine, internal medicine and primary care healthcare professionals. You can search for a doctor under any category. The list of doctors is organized by proximity to your location, from closest to furthest away. The list also provides the name, primary location, phone number and specialty of the doctor. A question mark next to the doctor's name means the doctor may accept the Medicare-approved amount, however you may be billed for more than the Medicare deductible and coinsurance. An M next to the doctor's name means the physician accepts the Medicare amount and your bill will not be more than the Medicare deductible and coinsurance.
