How To Learn Whether A Doctor Has Been Subjected To Disciplinary Action


It is not easy to check a doctor's disciplinary record because the great majority of states do not publish this information. Since the information is specific to each state, it becomes even more difficult to learn about any disciplinary actions against a doctor who has moved from another state.

Start with your state's Medical Board (sometimes known as Medical Examiners). To locate the licensing agency in your state, see:Federation of State Medical Boards at offsite link

Additional alternatives include:

  • Both offsite linkand offsite link provide free disciplinary information.
  • For a disciplinary report about a particular doctor, see the Federation of State Medical Boards: offsite link.
  • Public Citizen sells regional publications listing doctors disciplined by state and federal governments 877.747.1616 or go to offsite link, click on or search for the words: "Questionable Doctors."
