Hi,

This is an informative article --
Doctor 'Report Cards' Not Last Word on Physician Performance
http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/news/fullstory_103237.html

One important qualification to look for is whether a physician is board certified in his or her specialty --
American Board of Medical Specialties
http://www.abms.org/

There are these doctor rating services, but they charge a fee and I can't vouch for their selection methods --

Best Doctors
http://www.bestdoctors.com/us/What-We-Do/Overview.aspx

America's Top Doctors
http://www.castleconnolly.com/

These lists provide useful information:
