I Sued My Doctor. Why Didn't the Board of Medicine Do Something?
In accordance with New Hampshire law, all malpractice suits or claims must be investigated by the Board of Medicine. The Medical Review Subcommittee, as described above, will investigate the matter and make a recommendation to the Board, which will then vote on a course of action. If you do not file a complaint directly with the Board of Medicine, you will not be individually notified when the Board takes action. However, as described above, the Board may vote on a range of actions, from discipline (license suspension or revocation) to a confidential Letter of Concern to a finding that no action is necessary.
