The term “ranking” can be defined as the comparative relationship among the set of items that makes it possible to evaluate complex information according to certain criteria. It makes the list of items by reducing detailed measures to a sequence of ordinal numbers. Ranking methods vary depending on items or objects. In this research work, present an approach to the parameter based doctor ranking. The main aim of this paper is to develop a web-based system that will rate the registered doctors by calculating their some special quality. This research work has considered here nine different standards and applying the mathematical process of calculation such as min-max Normalization and Bayesian ranking etc. On the basis of the final calculating result, the system will have ranked the doctors that will help the users to find out their desired doctors.
