Legal Actions

When a Medical Commission investigation shows a licensee has committed a violation of the Uniform Disciplinary Act, the Commission votes to take action against the license of the practitioner. The Commission uses the clear and convincing legal standard for all cases. All legal actions are distributed via the legal actions email alert (sign-up) and the quarterly Medical Commission newsletter.

To look up a practitioner or their disciplinary documents, please use the Provider Credential Search and type in their license number or name listed below.
