How in depth does my research for a dr need to go? I'm troubled by this article on a potential dr.

So I was just about to make an appointment with for a breast reduction with a well known Kansas dr, when I ran into this article on the Pitch.com, a local magazine: http://www.pitch.com/gyrobase/the-high-cost-of-perfection/Content?oid=2166054&storyPage=1 If you've read through all the pages of the article, you will see it's pretty damn disturbing. Most upsetting of all is the fact that drs can have malpractice suits and official reprimands but they won't show up on basic review pages. I mean, wtf? I realize that all surgery has risks, and not everyone is going to heal the same way, or feel good about the outcome, but surely finding the right dr can possibly minimize this, right? I'm wondering how much research everyone did for their breast reduction dr, and how you finally decided to go with one dr over another. I'm going on the assumption that insurance is going to be covering me, because of my huge cup size, and documented back and neck pain, otherwise I couldn't afford this. However, I can't afford to pay fifty dollars per consultation and check out very many drs in person at that price. Are there places I can look for malpractice suits, etc, that WILL show up, since the usual suspects that I used (web md, rate a dr.com, etc) didn't show any of the extremely troubling information about this local dr?
