Once the Board receives a complaint it forwards the complaint the doctor (or other medical professional under its jurisdiction) who has thirty days to respond to the allegations. Approximately, three months after receipt of the complaint the Board reviews the complaint, the doctor’s response and any supporting investigative materials and decides whether the case should be dismissed or whether a letter of guidance or sanctions against the doctor should be imposed.
