Is a Confidential Letter of Concern Truly Confidential?
Yes. Only you and the Board know of the confidential LOC. Even the complainant (patient, family member, etc.) is told only that the Board has investigated the complaint and that investigation did not result in formal disciplinary action against the doctor; and that the complaint will remain in the doctor’s file and may be re-reviewed in the future for a pattern of conduct. However, the Board takes no position on whether you must report receipt of this letter to any other health licensing agencies in this state or in any other jurisdictions (e.g. in any other state you have a license).
