Another source for East Bay doctor reviews (esp. Kaiser)?

Does anyone have advice about a good one-stop-shopping way in ADDITION to Berkeley Parents Network to find existing community reviews of East Bay doctors, or where you can ask for recommendations for help with a particular issue or specialty? The recommendations here are super-helpful, but as I age out of the "active-parenting" category, I wonder if there's any broader source for this than a parents' group. (Just searching the internet rarely turns up anything that feels reliable, and Yelp reviews feel like current patients who are afraid to give less than 5 stars, mixed with people who are giving 1 star because they're mad about a slight.) I'm interested in Kaiser in particular, but "general doctors that include Kaiser" would be good enough.

Dear Anonymous, 

There's nothing like the Berkeley Parents Network!  Our kids aged me out of "active parenting" in 2017, but I still use BPN all the time -- as recently as yesterday, when I was looking for a handyman plumber. 

By the way, when our doctor retired from Kaiser, he highly recommended that we choose Dr. Suresh Rangarajan at Kaiser Oakland.  I was dubious at first, because his web page shows he has a focus on children, but my husband (now 85) and I have been seeing him for five years now, and we love him.  He's super smart, kind, and knowledgeable.  When my 54-year-old cousin joined Kaiser, I recommened him to her, and she loves him, too.  (As for his background, he grew up in the Midwest, and has children in college, I think.) 

I also find recommendations on Nextdoor.
