I need to locate a physician. Can you give me their address/phone?

To find a physician in your area, use our Physician Locator to search for a physician or physician assistant member by name, clinic, location and/or specialty. Or you can email WSMA membership services at membership@wsma.org, for assistance if the physician is a WSMA member.

Is there a directory of physicians for the state of Washington?

WSMA offers a free directory to its members called The Official Membership Directory of the Washington State Medical Association. For non-members or for those members who wish to order extra copies, we take orders for the directory on a pre-paid basis only. The directory is $55 per copy plus tax (shipping is included in price), and you may order from the WSMA online store. For those who wish to send a check, please make your check payable to the WSMA and mail it with your request to: 2033 Sixth Ave. Suite 1100, Seattle, WA 98121. 

How can I obtain a referral for a physician of a particular specialty?

The WSMA does not offer referrals. You can contact the King County Medical Society at (206) 621-9393. Otherwise, contact your county medical society.

How can I file a complaint against a doctor, or find out if a doctor has any complaints against them?

Try to resolve the dispute with your physician or contact your local county medical society.
