Which state provides the most accurate, up to date information about doctors to the public on the Internet?
A report released in October by Public Citizen says that New Jersey provides the most detailed information about its doctors on the Internet. Its site provides general profiles of over 30,000 physicians licensed in the state as well as information about their malpractice judgments, disciplinary actions, and criminal convictions. In contrast there is very little "real" information available at Virginia's doctor web site. North Dakota, however, ranked last in valuable information available for patients.
