About the Physician Profile

This Web site was created after former Governor George Pataki signed the New York Patient Health Information and Quality Improvement Act of 2000 to make it possible for all citizens of New York to get information about physicians (doctors).

Information Available on All Doctors
Certain information is required to be available on all physicians. Such information includes:

  • Information about the doctor's medical education
  • Information about translation services at the doctor's office
  • Information about legal actions taken against the doctor

To see all the information that is available for each doctor, search on any doctor's name.
