Searching for a Catholic physician in your area?

The Catholic Medical Association provides a searchable database of Catholic physicians across the United States. The CMA is a physician-led community of healthcare professionals dedicated to the ministry of health care and to the teachings of the Church. It is the largest association of its kind in the United States. The CMA serves the moral, spiritual, and professional development of its members. With a national membership of faithful, informed healthcare professionals, the CMA is uniquely positioned to foster a culture of life and to strengthen the Church.

Physicians self select to be part of the CMA database, therefore the list is not a comprehensive representation of all the Catholic physicians in the diocese. However, it can be a great place to start your search if you don’t know of anyone in your area.


WellCatholic is a new service building a convenient healthcare directory for people who want providers that adhere to Catholic values. All WellCatholic providers must practice in accordance with a set of promises that distinguish Catholic values in the healthcare sector. These promises were established by the Pontifical Council for the Pastoral Care of Healthcare Workers and are used worldwide. Physicians self select to join the network (which is searchable by zip code).


CPI-logo-nospaceThe CatholicPsych Institute was formed to answer the great need of today’s Catholics. Catholics need psychology that is consistent with the truth and dignity of the human person. Secular psychology does not offer that consistency; it tries to treat the person without understanding the person. That’s like shooting arrows in the dark! Catholic Psychology turns on the lights, and the CatholicPsych Institute provides resources and services that hit the mark.
