How To Look-Up Information on Your Medical Provider

April 11, 2022

If you would like to find information about a medical doctor, osteopathic physician, podiatrist, registered nurse, advanced practice registered nurse, certified registered nurse anesthetist, nurse mid-wife, physician’s assistant, or a licensed practical nurse there are a number of publicly available websites that you can turn to find out basic
information about your medical providers. By accessing these websites you can obtain general information including your medical provider’s education, licensure, and actions that may have been taken against them by their respective licensing Boards. And, in the case of the West Virginia Board of Medicine website, you can also obtain information to see whether your Doctor, Physician Assistant, or Podiatrist has had any
malpractice matters brought against them.
