What is Vitals?

Vitals compiles information on physicians from a wide variety of sources. The result is a free Physician Profile, which is made available to consumers at no cost. Vitals is a powerful resource, containing over 5 million patient ratings and reviews and over 1 million active, licensed doctor profiles. The more complete and accurate your information is on Vitals, the more likely it is that people will select your practice.
