licensee profile & status lookup instructions

The Licensee Profile and Status feature on this website is a tool you can use to check on the training, credentials, and disciplinary status of medical professionals licensed by the State Medical Board of Ohio.

To look up a licensee, follow these steps:

On the Ohio E-License Center page, select "Medical Board" from the drop down box next to the word "Division."

In the first box next to "-or- Name (Last, First)," enter the last name of the individual you are looking up. Tab over to the next box and enter the individual's first name or initial. You may use either capital or lower case letters. If you are unsure about proper spelling, or want to broaden your search, enter the last name only, or try entering just the first few letters of the last name. Click on "Search."

Choose and click on a highlighted name from the list of matches that will appear at the bottom of the page. (NOTE: If you can't find the name you are looking for, or no results are found, try the search again using a different spelling or entering only the first few letters of the last name.) When you click on a highlighted name, the Licensee Profile page will appear. This page includes biographical and professional information about the licensee, as well as details of any public disciplinary action that has been initiated and/or taken.

NOTE: The lookup system can display a maximum of 100 possible matches in response to a search request. You can narrow your search, making it easier to find the profile you seek, by completing additional search fields to specify the licensee's city, specialty, etc.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Does the Licensee Profile and Status page include information about complaints or malpractice suits that have been filed against a licensee with the State Medical Board?

Information about complaints against a licensee is not publicly available, as the Board is required by Ohio law to keep investigations confidential. Malpractice information received by the Board is used for investigative purposes and is thus also confidential under the law.

Why does the Residence Address not include the licensee's street address? Why does the birthdate only list the month and year?

Detailed personal information about a licensee such as his/her street address or complete birthdate is not considered essential to verify the identity of a licensee for credentialling or other purposes. To protect licensee privacy, the Medical Board's website limits biographical information to that deemed necessary for proper identification.

To look up a Physician Assistant Supervision Agreement:

On the Ohio E-License Center page, select "Medical Board" from the drop down box next to the word "Division."

Then select “41. PA Supervision Agreement” from the drop down box next to the word “Professions/Institution.”

In the box next to "BusinessName/DBA, " enter the last name and then the first name or initial, separated by a comma, of the doctor whose plan you are looking up (e.g., "Smith, Joan" or "Smith, J"). You may use either capital or lower case letters. If you are unsure about proper spelling, or want to broaden your search, enter the last name only, or try entering just the first few letters of the last name. Click on "Search."

In the alternative, if you know the Supervision Agreement number (e.g., 41.9999), you may enter that in the box next to” –or-License Number” and the plan profile will be displayed.

If you are checking a particular Physician Assistant, the list of plans that individual is listed under is available by accessing that Physician Assistant’s record. To find this information about a licensee, follow these steps:

On the Ohio E-License Center page, select "Medical Board" from the drop down box next to the word "Division."

Then select “50 Physician Assistant” from the drop down box next to the word “Professions/Institution.”

In the first box next to "-or- Name (Last, First)," enter the last name of the individual you are looking up. Tab over to the next box and enter the individual's first name or initial. You may use either capital or lower case letters. If you are unsure about proper spelling, or want to broaden your search, enter the last name only, or try entering just the first few letters of the last name. Click on "Search."

Choose and click on a highlighted name from the list of matches that will appear at the bottom of the page. (NOTE: If you can't find the name you are looking for, or no results are found, try the search again using a different spelling or entering only the first few letters of the last name.) When you click on a highlighted name, the Licensee Profile page will appear. This page includes biographical and professional information about the licensee, including the physicians who are approved to supervise the Physician Assistant. Details of any public disciplinary action that has been initiated and/or taken are listed under the practitioner's license information.

NOTE: The lookup system can display a maximum of 100 possible matches in response to a search request. You can narrow your search, making it easier to find the profile you seek, by completing additional search fields to specify the licensee's city, specialty, etc.
