pip install npyi


from npyi import npi

# sample search by first_name / last_name
response ={'first_name': 'Andrew', 'last_name': 'Jackson'})
print(response.keys()) # dict_keys(['result_count', 'results'])
first_entry = response['results'][0]
print(first_entry['basic']['first_name']) # ANDREW
print(first_entry['basic']['last_name']) # JACKSON

# sample search by NPI number
response = search(search_params={'number': '1417367343'})
print(response['result_count']) # 1
print(response['results'][0]['number']) # 1417367343

# sample search by city
response = search(search_params={'city': 'San Francisco'})
first_entry = response['results'][0]
print(len(first_entry['addresses'])) # 2 (different address purposes - LOCATION and MAILING)
print(first_entry['addresses'][0]['city']) # SAN FRANCISCO

# limit example
response = search(search_params={'first_name': 'Andrew', 'city': 'New York'}, limit=50)
print(response['result_count']) # 50
response = search(search_params={'first_name': 'Andrew', 'city': 'New York'}, limit=1000)
print(response['result_count']) # 200 (200 is the max)
response = search(search_params={'first_name': 'Andrew', 'city': 'New York'})
print(response['result_count']) # 10 (10 is the default)
