We make it easy to find the right doctor

Finding the right doctor for your unique situation is easy at Scripps. Visit our Doctor Finder and you’ll find information about our physicians’ education, experience, medical interests and how they care for you and your family.


Our doctor profiles on Scripps.org also include either star-ratings based on patient satisfaction scores or recommendations generated by users. Our patient satisfaction survey is administered through Press Ganey, an independent company, meaning the stars you see on a physician’s profile page in the Doctor Finder are based on actual patient experiences. They are a sign of the high-quality care Scripps provides and can be used as a guide to help you find the right doctor. When Press Ganey scores are not available, patients may recommend their doctor directly on Scripps.org using the recommend button appearing on physician profiles pages.
