HEALTH PROFESSIONALS -
If you've gone to the same doctor for a long time, no doubt you have confidence in him/her. However, if you are in the process of finding a new health care professional and would like to check to make sure their license is up-to-date, you may do so via the state of Indiana's web site. You may obtain license status for free, but if you want additional information there is a $2.50 fee.
