with my first baby - i was living where one of my sisters delivered and i used her Obgyn (best decision ever) he was a great dr and i didnt have to "find" him.
if your friends, relatives, general dr, neighbors, coworkers have anyone that they suggest go meet with them (once you are sure to cover Step #2 and #3 with them b4 you waste your time)
referals are a great source of comfort
i know with baby #2 i was just ofhandedly talking to one of the ladies at my daughters daycare and when i mentioned which Obgyn i chose she was like "OMG - try soandso instead" so i got the hint that i picked someone she had heard bad news about...
