Looking for ways to learn more about the physicians in your local market who may be referral sources for private pay home care? 

You can learn a lot online by going to the Physician Compare web site at www.medicare.gov.  This site
allows you to put in your zip code, or a zip code for a target geography, and find all of the physicians by medical specialty.  The site tells you where they went to medical school, where they did their residency, and the groups with which they are affiliated. 

In 2014 the site will also provide some basic quality data for each physician listed.  

Once you have the basic information about the physician, you can learn even more with a google search.
