Remember that everything is subjective. Two people can have completely different opinions on the same doctor.
I've spent a decade working in the pharmaceutical industry, 9 of which were in sales seeing 8-10 doctors/day.
If you need a specialist, always ask your Primary Care Provider for a recommendation.
Health Grades, Vitals, etc. are now widely used and shouldn't be taken with too much consideration because it's not an accurate reflection of the physician's practice as a whole.
Each state has a license verification website (google "Indiana Health Professionals License") where issues are public information - much better than relying on other sites.
Best thing to do is to find a doctor close by, see if they're accepting new patients and try them out. If you don't like them, the most you'll have to pay to break the relationship is $30 to transfer medical records to a new practice.
