Verify Your Medical License At Florida Department Of Health

While many of us know our doctors well and will have been registered with them for years, there will be times when we need to be treated by strangers. At such times it is important that we are able to find out a lot about the people who are being entrusted with our health and important for the medical license holders to have a way of showing that they are correctly registered. The only ones that will show are the ones registered by the MQA.

  • To begin you need to log onto the website that covers medical licenses and that is www.flhealthsource.com .
  • Once you are on the home page click the option “verify a license”.
  • You get the option to search current licensed providers, previously licensed provider or all.
  • The first piece of information you need to put in is your first name.
  • Next you need to enter your surname and again there is a box for this.
  • The next box is a drop down box and in it is a list of the medical professions that are covered. Click on the job title of the person whose license you are trying to verify.
  • The box underneath is where you need to fill in the name of the business.
