The term provider is generally applied to any person who provides healthcare: doctors, nurses, podiatrists, chiropractors, etc. However, many physicians do not appreciate being labeled providers.

- What is a healthcare provider?
How can I get a list of doctors in my insurer's network?
Insurers will typically have an online directory of providers, both individuals (doctors, podiatrists, etc.) and organizations (hospitals, rehab centers, imaging centers). Some may also have print directories of providers.
How can I determine if a doctor’s staff will be friendly and helpful?
Not only should a doctor’s staff be friendly and helpful, but they should be professional. That entails accuracy, discretion, politeness, efficiency and other characteristics of a professionally run medical office.
