I am often asked for recommendations for tax preparation (actually doing the forms) and for tax strategizing (planning in advance to lower future tax bills.) It is extremely difficult to vet tax preparers appropriately, and even good ones can make mistakes. The tax situation for many doctors, particularly employees, can be very straightforward and a CPA isn't even needed to do it well. Turbo tax would work just fine. There are also plenty of  CPAs who are mostly reactive, rather than proactive in lowering your tax bill. The firms listed on this page, however, specialize in planning and making changes in your business structure and financial life in order to lower future tax bills. Fees are generally per project/return or at an hourly rate.
