Is it possible to search for multiple keywords with Acrobat?

As most medical insurance companies provide important large documents as PDFs now, its becoming inconvenient to search for multiple keywords in separate searches. For example, I may want to search a doctor provided listing with two keywords, one for the doctor's specialty, and another for a hospital affilliation. I only have the free version of Acrobat now, but if searching for multiple keywords is possible in the paid version I'll go ahead and upgrade. Thanks for any help!

Yes, this is possible, even in the free version of Acrobat (called Acrobat Reader).

To do so open the Advanced Search window (Ctrl+Shift+F) and click Show More Options at the bottom.

Then enter your search terms and select "Match any of the words" in the drop-down below them. Then click Search. You'll get a list of all the matches of either of the words you entered. This does not work for multi-word phrases, though. To do that would require a script.
