How Do I Find a Certified Physician or Nurse Practitioner?

January 8, 2016

Contact your primary care physician to see if he or she is licensed to certify patients in New York State. If your PCP is not certified and not interested in becoming certified, he or she will still be able to find the names for other physicians or nurse practitioners who are certified and who have chosen to make their names public to other physicians and nurse practitioners through a physician-access portal. This portal is located on the Health Commerce System at the Department of Health webpage. Please note, the Department of Health does not currently allow dispensaries to provide the names of registered providers.
