The Board does not comprehensively verify the information required to be self-reported by doctors, and therefore does not accept responsibility for the accuracy of self-reported information. The Board conducts periodic random audits of profiles as an effort to improve the accuracy and timeliness of the information.
Please note that if a practitioner's license is not active, he is under no obligation to update his profile so the information contained in his profile may not be up-to-date.
