CAQualityRatings.org is a free resource for consumers to search ratings on more than 10,000 physicians across California. Each physician received a rating of one to four stars on measures in their area of specialty. Consumers can compare how providers are rated throughout California. The ratings for each doctor reflect two measures: first, how the doctor compares to other doctors in his or her specialty practice area in terms of providing a test/procedure for patients for whom it is recommended; and second, the percentage of the doctor’s patients for whom a test/procedure is recommended who actually received the test/procedure. The doctor’s page will also show a rating from one to four stars, which reflects where the doctor ranks on the first measure, compared to other physicians.
