What happens if a complaint is filed against me with the Mississippi State Board of Medical Licensure?
When a complaint is filed with the Board, the Board is authorized to investigate the allegations so long as those allegations fall within the jurisdiction of the Board. The Board may, with the permission of the patient, obtain and review medical records. The Board may also interview or obtain information from the respondent doctor. Then the Board decides whether to take disciplinary action against the doctor or whether to dismiss the case.
