The Medical Board handles general consumer complaints about the licensees listed above and may directly discipline providers who violate the public health and safety standards set by the legislature and the Board. The Medical Board does not have authority to address billing disputes, fee issues, disability ratings, or concerns about hospitals, urgent care centers, or nursing homes.
Board Review of Complaints
All complaints received by the Board are reviewed to determine jurisdiction. If the Board has jurisdiction, your complaint will be forwarded to the appropriate section of the office for further review. If the complaint is outside the Medical Board’s jurisdiction, it is referred to an appropriate agency.
The Medical Board is required by state law to maintain the confidentiality of all information related to Board investigations. If an investigation is conducted on your complaint, you may be contacted by a Medical Board staff member. The subject of the investigation and/or third party participants may also be contacted. The Board will not identify you as the complainant without first obtaining your permission to release your name.
If the Board takes disciplinary action, sanctions range from dismissal of the charges up to permanent revocation of the provider's license to practice in Ohio. To find out if a disciplinary action has been imposed, you may look up the provider on the Board’s website, using the following Licensee Look-up features:
