How Will I Find Out What Happens After I Make a Complaint?
The Board will mail you an acknowledgement that your complaint has been received, and you may call any time to check on the progress. If the Board votes to issue a Notice of Hearing, you will receive a copy of the Notice. If no action is taken, or if a Letter of Concern is sent to the physician/physician assistant, you will be informed only that the Board has investigated the complaint and this investigation did not result in a formal disciplinary action against the licensee. Unless the Board makes an affirmative finding that the complaint is unfounded in accordance with Revised Statute Annotated 329:17, XIII, the complaint will remain in the licensee’s file and may be re-examined in the future for a pattern of conduct.
