A recommendation system is a system that, based on a limited amount of information provided by users as well as the feedback given to goods, persons, and locations by other users, provides appropriate suggestions to the user. Today, with the large number of physicians and specialists, it seems necessary to have a system for identifying the right specialist and experienced physician for the patient. We present in this study a system for medical recommendations that analyzes physicians and specialists. It uses collaborative filtering and scores provided by other users to suggest physician recommendations according to the area of expertise of the physician. Research conducted and evaluation of results show that this system can successfully recommend a specialist doctor to the user in 90% of cases.
