    Once I envisioned the final outputs, the very next thing would be to acquire a list of doctors and their specialties. Being able to feed my application with this data allows new users (as patients) to sign up and have immediate capability to schedule appointments. API search can be fun and gnarly at the same time. I found success from other developers utilizing BetterDoctor API, and got really excited with their doctors and subsequent information. After spending a day on debugging sessions, I learned BetterDoctor API is officially deprecated. 😢 Fret not! I moved on, spent another day searching for an Open API, and landed on Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Their datasets are officially used on, and limited to eligible professionals (EPs) listed on Medicare Care Compare. As a result, I had to scratch out the Healthcare Provider model from my original domain modeling. The rest of my models still meet the purpose of fulfilling MVP and lay the groundwork for my Content Management System (CMS). The datasets seed about 450+ healthcare professionals with varying specialties. I had to refresh my memory on how to parse JSON data from REST API from my first capstone project. Thanks to Ruby gems OpenURI and Nokogiri, I successfully created my doctors collection in JSON format. I had to fudge a few doctors' attributes in order to execute model validations properly.
