How do you deliver the data?

Immediately after you have paid our license fee, the data will be available for online download instantly in CSV format. We include with each license grant a complimentary one year service contract, which will enable to you receive updates to your Licensed Product.

Upon expiration of your service contract, you may renew your service contract on an annual basis to continue to receive updates to your License Product. The service fee for the annual service contract for updates is 50% of the original license fee.

Where did you obtain the data?

The data we sell was originally collected by various government agencies. We obtained the data from these government agencies under the Freedom of Information Act. We then invested a huge amount of capital and time in collecting, combining, filtering, processing, organizing, and arranging the data. We did not add, create, or collect any of the data via any private channels whatsoever. Therefore, all the information we sell is legal public information.

Do you have email?

No. We do not encourage cold emailing or mass emailing. Therefore, we do not sell email addresses.

Do you have data for other countries?

No. We license our arrangement of U.S. data only (the "Licensed Product").

We are not responsible for the loss or damage caused by your improper use of the data.

How to change my information or remove myself from the database?

Our Company receives data collected by government agencies on physicians and medical practices, which we obtain through the Freedom of Information Act. Therefore, the information in our database is public information made publicly available by the government, which may also be available through other websites. In the event that your personal information is in our database and you wish to review, update, delete, or correct that information, then you need to contact the various government agencies which collect information on physicians and medical practices and update your personal information directly with those government agencies. We regularly update our data from our government sources and once your information is updated in the government repositories we will receive those updates automatically and will then synchronize our database with the updated information. If you are listed in our database and, for any reason, you do not want your listing to be included, you may complete the online removal request form.
