Ask the doctor where he does his hospital work and then call the medical staff office at that hospital to confirm that he or she has privileges.

Oftentimes the physician will be listed on te hospital website but the easiest method is to call the hospital and ask the operator or ask for the medical staff office to confirm their appointment.
