Disclaimer: General
The following information contained in this database is provided from the records of the Board of Medicine.

The Department and the Board have taken measures to assure that the above information reflects information contained in records that it maintains consistent with its statutory responsibility to doctors of medicine, osteopathy, and podiatry.

The following information is required to be self-reported by licensees under penalty of law. This information is not verified by the Board. The Department and the Board have the authority to investigate reported inaccuracies in the displayed information and if warranted, seek correction and effect licensee compliance with the law and regulations governing the practitioner information system.

Required information provided by doctors:

Optional information doctors may choose to include:


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.



Disclaimer: Malpractice Information

When considering malpractice paid claims data, please keep in mind:


Some studies have shown little correlation between the existence of a malpractice paid claims history and the practitioner's competence to provide care.

Malpractice paid claims histories tend to vary by specialty. Some specialties are more likely than others to be the subject of litigation.

Some doctors work primarily with high-risk patients. These doctors may have malpractice paid claims histories that are higher than average because they specialize in cases or patients who are at very high risk for problems.

Settlement of a claim may occur for a variety of reasons, which do not necessarily reflect negatively on the professional competence or conduct of the practitioner. A payment in settlement of a medical malpractice action or claim should not be construed as creating a presumption that medical malpractice has occurred.

The incident causing the malpractice paid claim may have happened years before a payment is finally made. Sometimes, it takes a long time for a malpractice lawsuit to move through the legal system.

Presentation of Required Data:

As of July 1, 2007, practitioners are required to report all paid claims over $10,000 in the last 10 years. For doctors practicing less than 10 years, the data covers their total years of practice.

To provide perspective regarding the reported data, the Board displays information about the paid claims experience of the practitioner's specialty along with the practitioner's history of paid claims. In reporting the data in this manner, each practitioner is seen relative to other practitioners in the specialty, rather than to all practitioners in all specialties.

Paid claims are not expressed in dollar amounts. Each paid claim has been analyzed and assigned to one of three statistical categories: below average, average, or above average. This analysis was made relative to the other claims in the specialty in which the claim occurred.

The information provided, in the manner provided, should offer perspective about this aspect of medical practice. You could miss an opportunity for high quality care by excluding a doctor based solely on the presence of a malpractice history. You may wish to discuss information provided in this report, and malpractice generally, with your doctor.
