Our Doctors of Osteopathy are here to protect the health and well being of the public in a manner that promotes quality care. The Board protects the public by assuring the D.O.'s that are licensed in this state are competently trained and practicing within appropriate standards. If you feel that any of these requirements are not being met or if you know of a D.O. that is not meeting these standards and you would like to lodge a complaint, please click on the "filing a complaint" link below.
This Board's authority and jurisdiction is ONLY over a licensed Osteopathic Physician. The Board does not have the authority to order a D.O. to pay any kind of restitution nor will we represent a patient in recovering any actual or punitive damages. Unfortunately, there are many instances when the Board doesn't have jurisdiction over an incident which forces us to dismiss the complaint. If this should happen don't be discouraged there are other agencies that may be able to help you with these types of situations, especially if you feel your D.O. has injured you. Please contact one of the resources below right away as some agencies have specific time limits in which to file a complaint.
