Roles and Responsibilities
State Medical Boards
Before a physician can practice medicine in any state, he or she must apply for a medical license and be approved by the state medical board. Medical boards investigate complaints against physicians and pursue disciplinary action when appropriate, which may include revoking a physician's medical license. Most state medical boards provide online services for the public to verify a physician's medical license and check for state disciplinary action.
The process for registering a complaint or concern varies by state. The following link will provide you with the information and forms you need to follow through with your state medical board.
