Specialties

Providers are grouped by their self-selected primary specialty in the National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES). This doesn’t necessarily mean the person has special training or certification. Services shown are for Medicare Part B only. (Note: Some specialty names may appear more than once because they have different underlying codes in Medicare.)
